THIS EXHIBITION TOOK PLACE IN 2007 Dod Procter lived in west Cornwall all her life but travelled extensively, including visits to Burma with her husband - the artist Ernest Procter – and, following his death, to Tenerife, the West Indies and Africa. Whether at home or abroad, she painted landscapes, portraits of children and still-lives including delightful flower studies often using blooms picked from her own beloved Newlyn Garden. This major retrospective and its accompanying catalogue will undoubtedly refocus critical attention on her work and ensure that Proctor is once again rightly acclaimed as a truly outstanding British painter.
