Though Procktor's paintings define the Sixties as much as those of his friend Hockney, his work has not been well documented. This comprehensive study draws on original interviews to explore his life and art. Illustrated with more than 100 reproductions, it charts Procktor's friendships with figures such as Cecil Beaton, Joe Orton and Princess Margaret, frankly addresses his conflicted sexuality and his alcoholism, and restores this brilliant, self-destructive artist to his rightful place among his contemporaries.
