Works in the collection
From her mid-career onwards Thea Proctor made numerous portrait and figure drawings of friends, lodgers and as commissions, necessary to earn her living. Drawing had always been the most regular and consistent activity of her artistic practice, influenced in part by the importance it held for her great friend and fellow artist George Lambert.
This watercolour 'Woman in white' shows the interior of the small ground floor apartment in Double Bay, where Proctor had moved from her George Street Studio, to live with her mother around 1935. The lower part of Lambert's evocative portrait of Proctor (also in the Gallery's collection) can be seen at the upper left of the painting.
