Footnotes

  • Tuke kept a detailed diary of his voyage to the Caribbean which he made with the explorer Mitchell Hedges and Lady Richmond Brown amongst others, from November 1923 to April 1924. They visited Guatemala, British Honduras, Belize and Jamaica where this watercolour was painted by Tuke on 14 February 1924 (R1079). He wrote in his diary for that day "Did a small sketch of the wharf with drogha loading barrels."* Tuke sold the work for £15 to Mrs Cobb of Kiln Quay in Falmouth when he returned home.

    *A drogha is a West Indian coasting vessel.
