Gerald Brockhurst, British, 1890-1978, "The Black Silk Dress". A superb portrait of Brockhurst's first wife Anais, this etching measures 8 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches, published in 1927 in an edition of 111, pencil signed. Born in England and found to be artistically talented at an early age, Gerald Brockhurst was enrolled in the Royal Academy Schools. A scholarship enabled him to study in France and Italy where the work of the great masters, especially Botticelli and da Vinci, had a lasting influenced on him. He became well known for his classically styled portraits etched with a remarkable sense of detail and texture.
