A good collection of paintings by a british master. Most paintings are of naked teenage boys by the sea in Cornwall, UK. This book provides a good collection of Tuke's paintings and the biography is interesting. However, if you can get a copy of the "Under Canvas" book about Tuke it's even better. A bit of trivia for the curious ... many Tuke originals are now owned by Elton John.

Henry Scott Tuke's paintings of teenage boys, usually on or near the water, have a very lyrical feel that has made them quite unique in the history of art. Somehow he manages to convey his love of these figures with a chaste quality that simply has you thinking how lovely these scenes are - like a sort of Renoir of boys. There is no intellectual content here or point being made, but his skill at evoking the light and the slender forms combines in every picture, often with a snapshot-like sense of movement also, carefully placed in the composition. Emmanuel Cooper was perhaps the world authority on gay art and his text provides a marvellous introduction to Scott Tuke, not too detailed, but giving a sense of the values of his time that discouraged such a theme, and his own life.
