About this product
- DescriptionNo maritime library will be complete without a copy of this volume on its shelves, for the Yorkshire fishing coble and the Yorkshire smack of the past century were among the finest examples of English sea-going craft ever devised, and ne more fitted for the rugged coast to which they belonged or for the stormy seas on which they used to sail. - Peter F. Anson, 1933 First published in 1933, this book of a hundred of Ernest Dade's delightful pen and ink sketches of the North Sea fishing fleet in the latter part of the nineteenth century is t only a significant artistic achievement, but also an invaluable historical record. Observed either from his own boat or from onboard the fishing boats themselves, the drawings have an immediacy rare in work of this kind - epitomised by the sketch on page 37 where it may t be too fanciful to imagine that the yawl in the foreground is Dade sailing out to meet the returning fishing fleet with pen and pad to hand. Not only do the sketches portray the boats and their gear accurately and in great detail, but they also show the fishermen at their work both offshore and inshore from most of the fishing centres of the Yorkshire coast. The facility of Dade's pen work can only be admired and most certainly enjoyed. These pictures show all this and are true in every way. Mr. Ernest Dade lived the life, knew the men, and sailed in the various craft he draws so well. It is a record of things passed away. - Frank Wheeler, Fisherman, 1932 This new edition has an illustrated Postscript on the restored 40ft Bridlington Sailing Coble Three Brothers.
- Author BiographyErnest Dade (1864-1935) was born in Kensington, the son of Fred Dade, an artist and photographer who moved to Scarborough in 1874, and at an early age Ernest, taking after his father, was to be found sketching the boats in the harbour. After a short period at sea he entered the Academie Julian in Paris in 1884 and completed his artistic education at the Scarborough School of Art under the artist yachtsman Albert Strange (1885-6). He shared Strange's passion for sailing and was later a founder member of Scarborough Sailing Club (1895) and its first captain. He went to London in 1887 and exhibited at the Royal Academy and at the New English Art Club. Returning to Scarborough he exhibited regularly both locally and nationally and became a founder member of the Staithes Art Club, painting and socialising with the then active members of the Staithes Group of artists. He married Maud Alderson-Smith in 1913 at St Martin's Church in Scarborough and once again moved to London where he worked for the rest of his life. His work is represented in the National Maritime Museum, The Imperial War Museum and many provincial galleries.
