English painter Henry Tuke entered the Slade in 1875. While there, he won a scholarship and travelled to Italy, where he made his first nude life drawings, an important revelation to him of light, colour and the human form. Tuke later settled in Newlyn, Cornwall, and was a founder-member of the Newlyn school. He travelled throughout his life, including Corfu, Albania, Jamaica and central America. His travels and admiration of Whistler greatly influenced his work.
