Description:
Mark Gertler (British, 1891-1939) Portrait of May Berlinsky signed, inscribed and dated 'To my young friend/May Berlinsky/Mark Gertler. 1910.' (upper left) oil on canvas 24 x 20 in. (61 x 50.8 cm.) Footnotes Provenance A gift from the Artist to the sitter, thence by family descent Private Collection, U.K. Literature John Woodeson, Mark Gertler: biography of a painter, 1891-1939, Sidgwick & Jackson, London, 1972, pp.73-74 The Berlinsky family were neighbours of the Gertler's in the East End with Mark striking up a close friendship with the similarly aged David. As a keen amateur photographer, David frequently recorded images of Gertler's work when the two would climb out of a back window on to the roof, providing over the course of time an invaluable record of some of the artist's earliest pictures. One of eight children, May Berlinsky (3/5/1898 – 3/7/1935) was fifteen when the present work was painted and became Gertler's first sweetheart, sitting for him on multiple occasions. Gertler compared the picturesque qualities of May to those of the girl in Rembrandt's significant portrait at Dulwich Picture Gallery, Girl at the Window (1645). Falling somewhere between genre and portraiture, the similarities between the two works are instantly apparent. Both depict their sitter leaning on a ledge protruding out of the picture frame and looking at the viewer with a direct gaze that draws us into the work, a fact underlined by the gesture both make with their left hand pointing towards themselves. As in the Rembrandt, May wears a distinctive necklace (although apparently not fiddling with it) and inhabits a dark, ambiguous space that is unidentifiable. Given his status as a student at the Slade, there is a confidence in Gertler's decision to transcribe the work of the Flemish master and in doing so create a realistic portrait capable of seducing his viewers. In a letter to the present owner's father, Luke Gertler talks of David Berlinsky's admiration for the present work stating, 'he was so proud of my father's portrait of his sister which you are now lucky enough to own'.

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Mark Gertler (British, 1891-1939) Harlequin watercolour, unframed 34 x 27cm (13 x 11in) Provenance: A gift from Mark Gertler to Professor and Mrs John Mavrogordato, with whom he stayed at Charmouth, Dorset, and by descent within the Mavrogordato family Other Notes: In 1908, Mark Gertler enrolled at the Slade School of Art, University College, London. During the four years he spent at the Slade, Gertler was a contemporary of Paul Nash, Edward Wadsworth, Christopher Nevinson, Dora Carrington and Stanley Spencer. The present watercolour shows Gertler's use of colour and enthusiasm for fairgrounds. His painting, "Merry-Go-Round" (now at the Tate), and another painting from 1915 entitled "Swing Boats" - now sadly lost - may have been inspired by rides at the annual fair on Hampstead Heath. Mark Gertler was a friend of John Mavrogordato (1882-1970), the Greek scholar, and his wife, Christine, and spent holidays in Charmouth, Dorset, with the family. Gertler's portrait of John Nicolas Mavrogordato is at Exeter College, Oxford (1926). Unframed and on buff paper.

Description:
Mark Gertler (1891-1939) Head of a Girl signed and dated 'M. Gertler./Sep. 5. 1910' (lower left) red chalk 9 x 8 in. (22.8 x 20.3 cm.) In Head of a Girl Gertler uses the soft shading and bold outline typical of the Slade during this period. The sanguine head of his mother, Golda (Victoria & Albert Museum) is from December of that year. Gertler received several prizes at the Slade during this period including first prize for drawing from the head, and careful draughtsmanship continued to underpin his work throughout his career. The sitter in the present work is highly reminiscent of the girl in Study of a Girls' Head in Profile, 1911 (Whitworth, Manchester) and Head of a Girl, 1912 (Leeds City Art Gallery), and may have been a Jewish friend or neighbour in the East End, where Gertler was living at the time. Paul Nash, the previous owner of Head of a Girl, attended the Slade for a year from the autumn of 1910. He recalled the Slade at that time: '[it] was in one of its periodical triumphal flows, when from the unknown deeps arise a few gifted ones. And now, upon the crest of the wave, were riding nearly half a dozen - Stanley Spencer, Mark Gertler, William Roberts, Edward Wadsworth, Charles Nevinson' (P. Nash, Outline, London, 1949, p. 90). We are very grateful to Sarah Mac Dougall and Luke Gertler for their assistance in preparing this catalogue entry.

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Mark Gertler (British, 1891-1939) Study of May Berlinsky signed 'M. Gertler' (centre right) pencil 30.6 x 25.4 cm. (14 x 10 in.) Provenance A gift from the Artist to the sitter, thence by family descent Private Collection, U.K. Mark Gertler began his studies at the Slade aged seventeen in 1908 and was the first working class Jewish student of his generation to do so. Under the tutorship of Henry Tonks he quickly established himself as an assured draughtsman and, amongst a crop of famously talented students, a natural successor to the celebrated Augustus John. Gertler won first prize at the Slade for his 'drawing of the head' and in the present work incorporates the firm outline to the face, typically darkening around the sitter's right cheek and jaw that exemplifies the Italianate style of artist's he admired such as Piero della Francesca.
