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.

Attributed to Sir Thomas Lawrence PRA (1769-1830)
Portrait of a gentleman, head and shoulders, believed to be the artist John Martin (1789-1854), wearing a black jacket and white cravat
Pencil with coloured chalks, 18.5cm by 14cm

John Martin first exhibited his famous "Sadak, In search of the Waters of Oblivion" at the RA in 1812 and it is possible that Martin would have come to Lawrence's attention at this time.
By 1821 Sir Thomas Lawrence famously referred to the artist John Martin as "The most popular artist of the day".
