Inhaltsangabe: This publication includes essays on the life and art of Gerald Brockhurst, one of the 20th century's great printmakers and draftsmen, and an analysis of the women featured in his work. Brockhurst, celebrated for his sophisticated renderings of the women in his life, is known for his portraits of the celebrities and "society" figures of his era. This first large-scale U.S. exhibition of the artist's prints, drawings, and etchings epitomizes the elegance associated with the decades of the 1920s and 1930s. A catalogue of exhibited works is also included.

Auszug. © Nachdruck mit Genehmigung. Alle Rechte vorbehalten.: Opening his eyes from sleep, Gerald Brockhurst saw a young woman, about whom "there was a feeling of closeness--something vaguely familiar in her face, as if we had already met." The artist, then a student in his early twenties, was in a railroad compartment on his way to Cannes to paint a portrait. Engaging the girl in conversation, he wished she could sit for him: "She was pale, tired looking--and there was a childlike sadness in her smile that tugged at my heart strings." When she got off, he remembered, "how she nodded good-bye, and smiled back at me as she went out the door," and how she left him "excited, yet oddly depressed." Only a few hours later, the painter saw her again: she looked out at him from a photograph that rested on the mantel of his patrons' drawing room at Cannes....After a dark silence, his host said, "That is our daughter, Jeanne. She died two years ago."... True or not, the anecdote, described by the artist as "a psychic riddle to which I can find no answer," points to a salient feature of his work: the aura of sensuous mystery tinged by sadness that surrounds his human subjects.
