thea proctor

Althea Mary (Thea) Proctor- 1879-1966. I love her style; the intensity of colour and strength of the bold line. It's sort of empowering and passionate. Which I suppose is why her works were called, 'dangerously modern' at the time. Maybe due to its feminist nature (i.e. a female artist depicting women- shock!) and, dare I say, hints of same sex romance. I also love George Lambert's (a close friend) portrait of her, middle- it's so elegant.
