On May 1841 in Newcastle upon Tyne, Charles Napier Hemy is born. He would spend his early life trying to decide if his calling was in the church, at sea or in the service of art. By the time that he commits to painting, the British School was exploring nature and its evocative power, and gaining prominence across Europe. A renowned Falmouthian, Napier Hemy settles in the town and spends a lifetime capturing life by the coast and the sea. In this episode, we tell his story and weave the work of poet Sarah Cave through it, inspired by Charles Napier Hemy, his process and his art. We also examine the regulations of Falmouth Cemetery a little further.
