These Boats Paintings are the result of a master craftsman and his ships and surrounding ocean-scapes are full of life and colour. Even if you are not a big fan of ships, you will still be stunned a the quality and liveliness of the work in this book from an artist who bought ship "portraits" to a new level. People Paintings This book is highly recommended for anyone interested in ships, especially sailing ships, or artists who enjoy high quality "realistic" painting illustrated in full colour on a large scale. Building Paintings As it says on the back cover, "Montague Dawson is considered by many to be the supreme maritime artist of the twntieth century." Well, I'm one of those who think that and this is a truly brilliant collection of his work.
