Dod Procter 25 Feb 2008
Penlee Gardens
The botanical painter best known for her portraits of young women

Dod Procter is perhaps best known for her botanical paintings which can still be found on greetings cards. But the Newlyn artist was once best known for her portraits of young women, often nudes. In the 1920s, Dod Procter was one of the most famous artists in the country and her painting ‘Morning’ was bought by the Daily Mail for the nation, after it featured in the Royal Academy’s summer show. Recently her paintings returned to her native Cornwall. Fiona Clampin meets Alison Bevan, from the Penlee House Museum and Art Gallery in Penzance to hear about Dod’s career and her connection to Cornwall.
