Patrick Procktor

Patrick Procktor
Irish
(1935- 2003)

Patrick Procktor was born in Dublin, the younger son of an oil company accountant, but moved to London when his father died in 1940.

In 1962 he became a professional artist and had his first show at the Redfern Gallery in London's Cork Street in 1963, a great commercial success that helped confirm his reputation among a wider artistic circle including the theater and music (he won numerous commissions for pop record sleeves). A year later, Procktor was featured in Bryan Robertson's New Generation exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery – a show that also raised the profile of fellow artists David Hockney, Bridget Riley and John Hoyland.
