Nelson Dawson

Nelson Dawson started out as a metal craftsman and was well known in England and Europe during the Arts and Crafts Movement. After closing his workshop in 1909, he became involved in creating soft-ground etchings and water colors of marine shipping views and river scenes during the early 20th century. Dawson preferred the soft-ground technique which resembles a soft crayon or charcoal drawing. He admired the Venetian etchings of Whistler and while living in Venice from 1914-15 did some admirable work pertaining to marine and shipping scenes in the area. Dawson was an Associate Member of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolors, the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers and had exhibitions at the Royal Academy in London. Reference: Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. Fairchild Memorial Gallery. Exhibition held in memory of former curator, Father Joseph Haller, who acquired and selected the Dawson collection.
