original poster, 1971

Patrick Procktor, (12 March 1936, Dublin, Ireland – 29 August 2003, London, UK) was an important British artist of the late 20th century. 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 theatre and music. 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.
Procktor’s work, primarily in oils, acrylics and watercolour, drew on pop art influences. His work is in the most important international museums. The Tate Gallery has an important collection of his famous watercolours.

This poster was produced for a show at Studio la Città in 1971
