More About this Item


Description: Montague Dawson British, 1890-1973 The Rivals: Taeping and Ariel Signed Montague Dawson (ll); inscribed The Rivals and with a copyright notice on the stretcher Oil on canvas 28 x 42 inches Provenance: Lane Fine Art Limited, London The great clipper ships of the 19th Century carrying tea from China to Britain (a distance of roughly 14,000 miles) competed informally to be first ship to arrive in London with each season's new crop. One of these, the Great Tea Race of 1866, ended with an unusually close finish, with the Taeping docking just 28 minutes before the Ariel. This was particularly bitter defeat for the Ariel, which had been ahead for most of the run, until encountering unfavorable tidal conditions in the Thames estuary.
