The major retrospective exhibition displayed works from his early career as a painter in Scarborough and the North East coast, his travels abroad, naval incidents during WW1, book and magazine illustrations, his etchings, premiere railway poster designer, and his later commercial work. Mason became a famous institutional exhibitor of marine art during his long and varied career but this exhibition shows the full variety of his oeuvre.
