Lot Essay

This is a late work of one of Tuke's longest serving models Charlie Mitchell (1885-1957), who frequently sat to the artist in this pose. The watercolour, which explores the subtle colours created by light reflected from water onto skin, probably dates from around 1923.
We are grateful to Catherine Wallace for preparing this catalogue entry.
