= This etching is considered Brockhursts print masterpiece and is probably his most celebrated work in the medium. The sitter is Dorette Woodward and the print is based on a charcoal drawing in the Wiggin Collection, Boston Public Library, Massachusetts. "In 1929 Brockhurst met Kathleen Woodward when she was a 17 year old model at the Royal Academy Schools in London. Their relationship developed rapidly and Brockhurst rechristened her Dorette; the pair eloped to America amidst great scandal. For Brockhurst, Dorette embodied his vision of young womanhood. The work displays Brockhursts virtuosity in rendering a variety of surfaces, textures and tones. His depiction of a young girl contemplating her image in a mirror has both a sensual vulnerability and sexual yearning rare in Brockhursts work" (British Council Visual Arts). SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE IX.
