    Alison James, writing about Proctor's female nudes of the 1920s, comments, 'In their much remarked vulnerability and uncertainty, Dod's young girls become psychologically powerful and beautifully real. They are neither sentimental nor sensationalized, just shown for what they are ...' (See A. James, A Singular Vision. Dod Procter 1890-1972, Bristol, 2007, p. 93).
