Henry Scott Tuke was born in York, the son of a Quaker doctor. He was brought up in Falmouth and London. He studied at the Slade, in Florence, 1880, and Paris, 1881–1883, under J. P. Laurens. He was encouraged by J. Bastien-Lepage to continue his studies 'en plein air'. He returned to Cornwall, first to Newlyn and then in 1885 to Falmouth where he bought a boat. He was often associated with the Newlyn School of painting but denied any links with it himself.
