Dod Procter

ARTIST

Procter, Dod

1890 – 1972

Dod Procter (nŽ e Doris Shaw) attended the Stanhope Forbes
School of Painting (1907’08) from the age of fifteen. There she
met Ernest Procter (1886’1935), with whom she studied at the
AcadŽ mie Colarossi in Paris (1910’11) before they married in
1912. She first exhibited at the RA in 1913, and in 1914 held a
joint exhibition with her husband at the FAS, London. 

During the 1920s, Procter made portraits, usually of
women, often in classical poses though usually with a soft focus
creating an aura of sensuality. Somewhat radical for the time,
the paintings’ eroticism caused some controversy; nevertheless,
Morning (1926) was voted Picture of the Year at the RA Summer
Exhibition in 1927. She also illustrated numerous texts, including
A Penny for the Guy by Clare Collas, published in 1945. 

A prolific exhibitor, Procter showed at the NEAC, NSA,
Grosvenor Gallery and STISA (of which she became president in
1966). She was elected RA in 1942.
