EMANUEL PHILLIPS FOX
A LOVE STORY,
After the death of David Charteris McArthur at his home ‘Charterisville’, East Ivanhoe on 15 November 1887, the property for many years was rented out to artists. These included Emanuel Phillips Fox and Tudor St. George Tucker who moved into ‘Charterisville’ after Walter Withers vacated the property in 1894. Here at ‘Charterisville’, Fox and Tucker established a Summer school and taught plein-air painting and aspects of French impressionistic practice. ‘A Love Story’ was painted in the garden at ‘Charterisville’, and the model was Ursula Foster, one of the students.
