Thea Proctor was a prominent tastemaker who contributed to the development of modernism in Australia through her work as a painter, printmaker, designer and teacher. Favouring cosmopolitan female figures and a local subject matter, her varied body of work exudes the stylised elegance and distinctive features underpinning Sydney modernism in the 1920s. ‘The Rose’ is perhaps her most iconic work, championing the feminine as subject matter and stylistically reflecting her enthusiasm for Japanese prints.
Exclusive to the Gallery Shop this ready to frame print is mounted using high-quality matboard.
