Footnotes

  • This is one of hundreds of watercolours Tuke produced of shipping in the harbour over the 43 years he lived in Falmouth from 1886 - 1929. It is of one of his favourite subjects - a green-hulled barque – he often sought out green boats to paint. This barque seems to be flying the Danish flag.

    Tuke would row out from the beach below his house at Pennance point into the Carrick Roads where many of the visiting ships to Falmouth would make anchor. He would then paint the boats on the spot whilst afloat. This painting has all the immediacy of a 'plein-air' watercolour and was probably completed in a day.

    We are grateful to Catherine Wallace for her assistance in cataloguing this lot.
