The Run Home, Henry Scott Tuke (1858-1929)

Oil on canvas, Newlyn School, late 19th century / early 20th century. Henry Scott Tuke was born into a Quaker family in Lawrence Street, York. In 1859 the family moved to Falmouth, where his father Daniel Tuke, a physician, established a practice. Tuke was encouraged to draw and paint from an early age and some of his earliest drawings, aged four or five years old, were published in 1895. In 1875, he enrolled in the Slade School of Art. Initially his father paid for his tuition but in 1877 Tuke won a scholarship, which allowed him to continue his training at the Slade and in Italy in 1880. From 1881 to 1883 he was in Paris where he met the artist Jules Bastien-Lepage, who encouraged him to paint en plein air (in the open air) a method of working that came to dominate his practice. While studying in France, Tuke decided to move to Newlyn, Cornwall where many of his Slade and Parisian friends had already formed the Newlyn School of painters. He received several lucrative commissions there, after exhibiting his work at the Royal Academy of Art in London. In 1885, he returned to Falmouth where many of his major works were produced. He became an established artist and was elected to full membership of the Royal Academy in 1914. Tuke suffered a heart attack in 1928 and died in March 1929. In his will he left generous amounts of money to some of the men who, as boys, had been his models. Today he is remembered mainly for his oil paintings of young men, but in addition to his achievements as a figurative painter, he was an established maritime artist and produced as many portraits of sailing ships as he did human figures. He was a prolific artist, over 1, 300 works are listed and more are still being discovered. The model at the helm is Hingston, cox of the lifeboat for many years, the other two are Jackett of Falmouth

EDITORS COMMENTS
The Run Home" by Henry Scott Tuke is a captivating oil painting that captures the essence of late 19th century coastal life. Tuke, a renowned artist from the Newlyn School, was deeply inspired by his surroundings in Cornwall and this piece exemplifies his mastery of capturing both human figures and maritime scenes. In this particular artwork, we see three individuals on a boat, navigating their way back home. The central figure at the helm is Hingston, an experienced coxswain of the local lifeboat for many years. His weathered face reflects determination and expertise as he guides the vessel through choppy waters. On either side stands Jackett of Falmouth, another familiar face in the community. Tuke's attention to detail is evident in every brushstroke; from the ripples on the water to the billowing sails above them. He skillfully portrays light and shadow, creating a sense of depth and movement within the composition. While "The Run Home" showcases Tuke's talent as a figurative painter with its focus on these rugged seafarers, it also highlights his versatility as an artist. Throughout his career, he produced numerous portraits of sailing ships alongside his iconic depictions of young men. Today, Henry Scott Tuke continues to be celebrated for his contributions to art history. With over 1,300 listed works and more still being discovered, his legacy lives on through these timeless masterpieces that capture both beauty and authenticity.
