Steven Dews - The Preliminary Paintings

HMS Pandora Gives Chase - original oil on board

Original, detailed paintings, the preliminary studies for larger works by the highly-rated marine artist Steven Dews. 

A rare opportunity to acquire original works by an artist whose larger paintings regularly sell at prices in excess of £100,000.  

They are beautifully painted mainly on board and apart from resale in auction that might occur, these are the only paintings that will be available until mid-2024 at the earliest.

Confirmation of his pre-eminence came in the Sothebys sale of Maritime Art in London in 1999, where his original, entitled Off Cowes, sold for the phenomenal price of £89,500 ($165,000). This result followed on quickly from the sale at auction in 1998 of the Steven Dews painting An Opportune Breeze from the South East for £52,800. 
His spectacular canvas, The Battle of Trafalgar, reached a new world record price for the artist when it was auctioned in Bond Street, London, in the summer of 2005. The eventual buyer paid over £95,000 for this painting (approximately US$170,000), which was the highlight of a day-long sale to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Nelsons great victory at Trafalgar. The original painting is one of the largest the artist has ever created, with dimensions of 40 x 66; the painting took seven years from commission to final completion. It has also been published as a limited edition print in seven formats across both paper and canvas. 
In December 2006, his record price was broken again when the painting Westward Reaching Through Cowes Roads sold at Sothebys in London for £120,000, double its pre-sale estimate. 
Almost fifty of his limited editions have now been published, most of which have long been sold out, and his work is avidly collected around the world. 
Steven Dews currently lives in Australia and intends to sail around the world in his new boat, which is currently being built. Above all, he lives and loves the subject he paints.
Very occasionally a new original painting by Steven Dews becomes available.  Prices are generally in excess of GBP £100,000.  If you would like to be informed at an early stage as and when a Dews original comes on the market, please email Julian Thomas.
