Dod Proctor There are five paintings by Dod Procter (1890-1972) at the Penlee House Gallery, Penzance: on this page it says that after she was at the Forbes' School 'she went on to become perhaps the most famous artist of her day'. And it's true, although most people are not familiar with her work nowadays, she was once very well known (more on this tomorrow), and in this respect is the Charles Morgan of the art world: he was a very fashionable and popular novelist whom 'everyone' read but is now almost forgotten (although in fact Capuchin Classics have reprinted The Voyage). This is an undated self-portrait at Penlee House, on loan from a private collection.
