William Henry Edward TUCK

William Henry Edward TUCK
aka Harry TUCK

Born on 15 June 1846, London (GRO), the artist exhibited a painting with a Newlyn title at the Institute of Painters in Oil Colours in 1895. His working address from which he exhibited in the period from 1880-1906 (J&G), was at Haverstock Hill, London. Christopher Wood, following Graves, states an earlier set of exhibiting dates, being 1870-93 (RA works in 1883 and 84). This conflict is somewhat puzzling, but has not been researched at this time. Both ranges are within the artist's lifetime. Harry Tuck died in London, age 68, on 4 February 1915 (GRO).
