Study for Summer Dream

1918

Oil on wood panel

26,5 x 35 cm

U.K. - Falmouth - Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society Tuke Collection

The model was Tom White (b. 11 March 1901), a Post Office messenger boy from March 1915 for about 6 months, then became a telegraphist. After having been on night duty at Falmouth Post Office, he fell asleep on Newporth beach while modelling for Tuke. He was then asked to keep the pose so Tuke could paint a full nude version which was called "Summer Dreams".


If you have missing data to add, more or better pictures of the Tuke boys' paintings, please send them to us at andrej@andrejkoymasky.com.

Thank you very much.
