It is very different from the bravado style of Sargent's society portraits and is painted with an honest simplicity and compassionate warmth that places it firmly among his greatest masterpieces. Charles Napier Hemy was Falmouth's first Royal Academician and one of the founding members of the first Falmouth Art Gallery. Falmouth purchased a seascape by Hemy with an Art Fund grant in 2008.
