The subject of portrait was a fisherman's daughter that Procter personally knew. Procter paid close attention to the light and shadows in this painting, which made it look realistic. The coolness of color tone also contributes to the sense of stillness this painting conveys. This particular work, Morning, was displayed in New York, followed by a tour in Britain, from 1927 to 1929, due to its high popularity. This painting caught my eye as I was browsing through Procter's works because the still state the woman in the painting was in was captured very realistically by Procter, and it appealed to me.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
