|Dod Procter Sleeping Girl National Gallery of Ireland|
Dod Procter (1892-1972) was a Newlyn painter living and working in Cornwall, and her Sleeping Girl, is in the collection at the National Gallery of Ireland. It has been a love affair with me, ever since I first set eyes on this painting, and every so often I go and pay my respects to this understated masterpiece . To me, it is such a magnificant painting, with it’s strength of composition, dexterity and skill: juxtaposed with the serenity of the sleeping girl and the quietness of the tonal painting-it is just breath-taking!
