Portrait of Hermione. Gerald Leslie Brockhurst (English, 1890-1978). Oil on panel.In September 1914 Brockhurst and his new wife, Anaïs Folin, embarked on a tour throughout France and Italy. This trip provided the artist with his first direct contact with the work of the Italian masters, particularly those of the quattrocento. The influence of those works is evident in this painting, a highly striking portrait of Anaïs, which was subsequently given a fanciful title.
