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.
