Oil on canvas 18 ¼ x 24 inches
Framed size 22 ¼ x 28 inches
Marine painter born in Hull on 3 April 1811, his family moved to Nottingham in the following year. His working life started in a lace factory and after teaching himself to paint he became sufficiently proficient to make a living from it by 1835, although he did take some lessons with J. B Pyne in 1838.
In 1844 he moved to Liverpool and then to London in 1849.
He had started to exhibit Derbyshire scenes at the Royal Academy and the British Institution in 1841 but was soon showing coastal views and port scenes, especially the Port of London.
He continued to exhibit at the British Institution until it closed in 1867 and at the Royal Academy until 1874 where the hanging committee tended to sky his exhibits.
In 1978 Nottingham University Art Gallery held an exhibition with a catalogue by Heather Williams.
Henry Dawson died in Chiswick on 13 December 1878.
