Henry Scott Tuke 1858 - 1913
Henry Scott Tuke was a British painter whose paint strokes where rough and visible in a time when smooth stokes and polished finishes were all the rage. In 1885 he bought a fishing boat and converted it into a art studio. It was here, while living on this boat, that he created his most famous paintings of young men swimming in the nude. Our favorite past-time.
