Thea Proctor made many watercolours on silk, including fans, a technique popularised by Charles Conder. She began painting fans while living and working in London from 1903-21, and her simple still life compositions were well known in Australia from the 1920s on, particularly in Sydney where she was an influential member of the art world.
