- Further information
Proctor's image of fashionable, independent women and their shared pleasure in the fragrance and beauty of flowers, epitomises the artist's championing of the feminine. Its modern approach through a simplified, close-up view, in bright, unmodulated colour also reflects the artist's enthusiasm for Japanese prints. Based on a coloured pencil drawing, originally created as a cover for 'The Home' magazine, the artist's cousin Hera Roberts is seen on the right.
