Synopsis

Charles Napier Hemy, 1841-1917, was the most accomplished marine painter of his generation. This book tells the story of his life. Charles Napier Hemy, 1841-1917, was 'the most accomplished marine painter of his generation. His intimate knowledge of the sea was central to his art - the ocean's swell, its power, strength and dangers are all captured with a brilliance rarely equalled and never surpassed.' (Brian Stewart, Director, Falmouth Art Gallery, in the Introduction.) Margaret Powell, the artist's granddaughter, uses Hemy's notebooks to tell the colourful story of his life, from his childhood in Newcastle upon Tyne and emigration to Australia, to his time at sea and in Dominican monasteries, and finally in Falmouth, Cornwall, where he lived for over 30 years, and achieved the height of his powers.

Margaret Powell is granddaughter of marine artist Charles Napier Hemy.
