Monday hero: Dod Procter

There hasn't been a Monday hero for the last two weeks, because I was away on beautiful Terschelling island.

But now I'm back with another great artist to put in the spotlight: Dod Procter.


The British painter Dod (Doris) Procter (1890-1972) was born Dod Shaw, but married Ernest Procter, who was also an artist. 

Together they studied at various artschools in Britain and Paris. They lived and worked in Cornwall.


Dod Procters earlier work is quite sharply outlined, later her work became more impressionistic.

Her work has fallen out of favour after her death, but lately has found recognition again.

    Hello Annette,
    My Nana was Dod Proctors househelp during the 40s in Newlyn / Cornwall.
    Ms Dod drew-made-painted--produced a charcoal portrait (now printed copy) of my father/ 12-13yrs- a boy-approx 1945-46 called Sabines Richard.
    The portrait apparently hung in the old Tate gallery. Any info would be appreciated.
    Kind regards.
