Gerald Leslie Brockhurst RA, RE (1890-1978)
"The Amberley Boy"
Signed in pencil, a black and white etching, together with a further signed etching by the same artist "The Two Melisandes", 19cm by 14.5cm and 14cm by 8.5cm respectively (2)
Melisandes depicts Anais Folin, the artist's first wife, holding their baby daughter. Reputedly Anais could only stand for a brief 20 minutes following the birth, and as such the artist etched the image onto the plate in this time.
