Gerald Brockhurst, British, 1890-1978, "West of Ireland". This is a striking original etching by British artist Gerald Brockhurst. The image size is 4 7/8 x 5 3/4 inches, published in 1928 in an edition of 111, pencil signed, framed, with a label from the Vincent Price Collection. Although Brockhurst is known for his remarkable portraits, this is one of his finest, most sought after etchings. 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.
