The Tea Clippers by Montague Dawson
Depicting the famous race between Taeping and Ariel off Lands End in 1866, Montague Dawson’s The Tea Clippers is a classic depiction of traditional naval merchant life. Capturing the public’s imagination as greatly as the modern day America’s Cup, Taeping eventually won the race to return from China to London by just 28 minutes.
