About

Henry Rushbury, A.R.A., R.E., R.W.S., No. 2. 1930. Etching. Fletcher 66. Published state. 10 x 7 3/8 (sheet 14 1/2 x 10 3/4). Edition 111. Illustrated in 'Royal Academy Illustrated' 1930; 'Fine Prints of the Year' 1930; Print Collector's Quarterly 21 (1943): 331. An exceptionally rich impression with printed on cream wove paper. Signed in pencil. Housed in a 19 1/2 x 16-inch Hogarth style frame. This etching is after the painting of Henry Rusbury in a landscape background owned by J. Leonard Sessler of Philadelphia, exhibited at the R.A. in 1929. The portrait was painted in 1927, the year that Rushbury was elected A.R.A. An impression was exhibited at the R.A. in 1930, no.1059, and the R.E. in 1930, no.86. After attending the Birmingham School of Art, Gerald L. Brockhurst entered the Royal Academy Schools in London, where he received the Gold Medal and Traveling Scholarship in 1913. The award allowed him to visit Paris and Italy, where he studied works by early Italian painters. Piero Della Francesca and Leonardo da Vinci remained important influences. From 1915 to 1919, Brockhurst lived in Ireland, where he met painter Augustus John, whose painting style was influenced by contemporary French art's simplicity of color and forms During the 1920's Brockhurst became an etcher, focusing primarily on female portraits and using his wife as his model. Coolness, technical perfection, and overt classicism mark both his printmaking style and his painting manner.
