Catalogue Note

This watercolour probably dates from 1923 and depicts Charlie Mitchell (1885-1957). Mitchell was a local Falmouth fisherman who first posed for Tuke in the summer of 1901 for Ruby, Gold and Malachite (Guildhall Art Gallery, London). He became Tuke's favourite model and posed for him for more than thirty-years. He had a particularly elegant back and often appeared in Tuke's pictures facing out to sea.
