Patrick Procktor (1936-2003) was a British painter who attended the Slade School of Fine Art in 1958 after his service in the Royal Navy. He worked mainly in acrylics, oils, and watercolours. Procktor was a member of an influential group of British artists that included David Hockney, Patrick Caulfield, John Hoyland, and Bridget Riley. He was also well known for his male nudes which included disabled models. His use of thin washes and airy colours enabled him to convey the emotions in his models. After the death of his wife, Procktor succumbed to depression and alcoholism which lead to periods of homelessness and living in temporary accommodation.
Procktor’s works are held in the collections of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and the Royal Academy of Arts in London. If you are interested to read more about Patrick Procktor's biography, read our blog.
