Montague Dawson’s Reef down is an oil on canvas depicting the clipper ships. Growing up on the edge of the sea in Southampton, Dawson spent his youth learning about shipping, sailing, and fishing. The time spent on the sea added to his skill of portraying realism in his work. Another lot is a painting by Julius Leblanc. His work communicates the subject’s mood through a blend of subtle colors and composition. Hans Zatzka, Eugen Von Blaas, Francesco Alegiani, and many more artists are featured, encompassing Europe’s art and culture through the years. Register to bid online on Sotheby’s.
