Thomas Dutton (1819 - 1891) was an English artist who specialised in marine portraits. In 1843 he was described as “lithographic artist, marine draughtsman, and draughtsman on wood”. Dutton lithographed work after such eminent artists such as Sir Oswald Brierly (Marine Painter to Queen Victoria) and N.M. Condy. His lithographs are among the finest examples of marine prints, but his only connection with New Zealand is that some of his subjects, such as the "Egmont" and "Tararua" carried immigrants to the colony. Avon Fine Prints re-issued lithographs of early immigrant ships in limited editions - we have a good selection in stock as these are great prints for genealogists researching their family history to own.
