Fletcher/Copenhaver Fine Art
Henry Scott Tuke (1858-1929)

Tuke, born in York, studied at the Slade School in London and later in Florence (1880) and Paris under J. P. Laurens (1881-83). On his return to England, he settled in Cornwall which was already a center for French-style plein-air painting. He first lived in Newlyn and was one of the founders of what is called “the Newlyn School.” Later he moved to Falmouth. His works often reflected his love and knowledge of the sea. According to Christopher Wood, “His style, bold and realistic, was much admired for its feeling of sea and sunlight and is well-suited to his themes of rugged life on the Cornish coast.

Tuke was a prolific painter. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1879 and was elected to its membership in 1914. He also exhibited at Suffolk Street, Grosvenor Gallery, New English Art Club, New Gallery, and elsewhere.
