These two works by the early Cantabrian painter arrived yesterday in Remuera Gallery.
Born in Scotland, Procter arrived in Christchurch in 1887. He studied at the Canterbury College School of Art, as well as being a pupil of Petrus van der Velden (1837-1913). He went on to become an instructor at the College but between 1904 and 1906 he visited Europe, studying in Paris and Antwerp. On his return, Procter lived in Christchurch until 1916 when he moved to teach at the Elam School of Art in Auckland. In 1928 he moved to Melbourne where he died.
