Henry Scott Tuke (1858-1929)
Tuke entered the Slade School of Art, London, in 1875. In 1877 he won a Slade scholarship and in 1880 travelled to Italy, where he made his first nude life drawings. From 1881 to 1883 he studied in Paris under Jean-Paul Laurens at the Académie Julian and met Jules Bastien-Lepage. Admiring Bastien-Lepage's practice of focusing different areas of a painting by degrees of finish, Tuke adopted this in his own mature work. In 1883 Tuke settled in Newlyn, Cornwall, and was a founder-member of the Newlyn school. During the 1880s he produced plein-air paintings of the life of the Cornish fishing community. In 1892 he travelled to Italy, Corfu and Albania; thereafter his palette lightened, and his technique gained a new Impressionistic freedom. The nude adolescent male eventually became his principal motif. In 1886 Tuke was a founder-member of the New English Art Club and in 1900 he was elected an ARA. In 1923 Tuke visited Jamaica and Central America, producing some fine watercolours. He became ill and was forced to return home. He never fully recovered his health, although his passion for travel remained undiminished.
