Marie Tuck was a South Australian painter and printmaker. Heavily influenced by French culture and painting, it took Tuck 10 years to save the money to travel to France where she took lessons from the Paris-based Australian painter Rupert Bunny, cleaning his studio as payment. It was only the outbreak of WW1 that brought Tuck reluctantly back to Australia.
