Montague Dawson

Montague Dawson was born in 1895 in Chiswick, London, England, and died in 1973. Montague Dawson is one of the all time top British maritime artists. Dawson was born into an artistic family in London in 1895. Montagu Dawson was not trained as an artist but he inherited a talent for painting. Dawson was taught the art of painting by his fathe, a Thames yachtsman and artist, and also Henry Dawson his grandfather who was a successful landscape painte. Around 1910, he was hired by a commercial studio in London. At the outbreak of World War I, he joined the Royal Navy, where he illustrated images of war for publications. After the war ended, he established himself as a painter and illustrator, concentrating on historically accurate portraits of ships, drawing on Britain's rich nautical heritage. Dawson was present at the final surrender of the German High Seas Fleet and many of his illustrations depicting the event were published in the Sphere. In the 1920's, he became formally associated with Frost & Reed; the association increased his exposure, led to an increased demand for his works. In 1924 Dawson was the official artist for an expedition to the South Seas by the steam yacht St.George. During the expedition he provided illustrated reports to the Graphic magazine. During the Second World War, he was employed as a war artist and again worked for The Sphere. Dawson exhibited regularly at the Royal Society of Marine Artists, of which he became a member. From 1946 to 1964 Dawson was considered the greatest living marine artist, whose patrons included President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Lyndon B. Johnson, as well as the British royal family; his works often exhibit at the Royal Society of Marine Artists, and the Royal Academy of Art between 1916 and 1936. Also in the 1930s, he moved to Milford-Upon-Sea in Hampshire, living there for many years. Montague Dawson passed away in 1973.

 Whilst flying with A Flight of 85 Squadron on 30th July 1940, Geoffrey Allard encountered a pair of Messerschmitt Bf.110s about 40 miles from the coast, apparently patrolling near a convoy.  After Squadron Leader Townsend, flying  Red 1, had made two unsuccessful attacks, Allard closed to 150 yards and began to fire continuously, eventually closing to just 25 yards, whereupon the starboard engine of the Bf.110 began to disintegrate. This was just one of eight victories that Allard claimed during the Battle of Britain to add to a previous eight that he had scored flying Hurricanes during the Battle of France.

 The mighty Bismarck returns fire to the fast-approaching HMS Hood at the start of a battle that would see both adversaries tragically sunk. The Bismarck would later be attacked by Swordfish aircraft from HMS Ark Royal, damaging her stearing and allowing her to be caught by the British battleships Rodney and King George V. The once proud German battleship would be ruthlessly pounded into a twisted and burning wreck and finally finished by HMS Dorsetshire with torpedoes at around 10:30 hours on the morning of May 27th 1941. HMS Dorsetshire and HMS Maori combed the area of the sinking for survivors, between them picking up a total of 110 out of an original complement of 2,300.

 Wherever the GIs went they took their Jeeps with them, and before the war was run the little quarter-ton, 4-wheel drive, utility vehicle was as well known around the world as the Model T Ford. Nicolas Trudgian has painted a compelling image, set back in time when the little Jeep was omnipresent on and around the roads and battlefields of a war-torn world. It is Christmas 1944 and, as a gaggle of 339th FG P-51 Mustangs disturb the peace of this ancient English village, a little Jeep waits patiently outside the pub while her occupants sample the local ale. A wonderfully nostalgic painting that will bring back pleasant memories to many.
