Artists Biography

Adam Edwin Proctor

British 1864-1913
Born on 10 October 1864 in Camberwell, London, Adam Edwin Proctor was a painter of genre scenes and landscapes. He studied under Frederick Brown, whose style was heavily influenced by the great James McNeill Whistler. Other prominent students of Brown include Augustus John, William Orpen, Alfred Garth Jones, Emily Beatrice Bland, Wyndham Lewis and Henry Charles Brewer.

Proctor was a member of the Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours.

Proctor was born at Brook and lived there for most of his life and many of his paintings were of the Shere area. It was known that many of these paintings were given away to local people in return for goods and services and are believed to still be treasured by the same families today.

Amongst his favoured subjects were the places of Shere, around Paddington Pond, near Abinger Hammer and Gomshall on the Tillingbourne.

Proctor died on 27 May 1913 in Guildford.
