SVAC RECEIVES GIFT

SVAC thanks Marie Harris for a recent gift of a Gerald Brockhurst portrait of her grandmother Mary D. Harris (1890-1955) given in memory of Basil and Marie Harris . This painting was of interest to SVAC's collection's volunteer Barbara Melhado, who studied Brockhurst, and brought it to us. The companion portrait of Basil Harris, Mary's husband, hangs in the U.S. Customs Office in Washington D.C.

Gerald Brockhurst (1890-1978) was an English artist well known for his portraits in the 30's and 40's. Among his subjects were the Duchess of Windsor and Marlene Dietrich. His portraits were done mostly in a frontal style reminiscent of Leonardo da Vinci, whom he called his greatest influence.

This gift not only pays tribute to the Harris family but also memorializes Barbara Melhado who died in December. Barbara brought so much knowledge and enthusiasm to SVAC and we would not have this painting were it not for her and her love of Brockhurst.
