A superb painter of life in the American Southwest, Burt Proctor studied with Harvey Dunn in New York, and something of Dunn’s approach—in which the artist builds a composition by applying geometries of thick paint, often with a palette knife—can be seen in Proctor’s work. On the Beach also shares some qualities with Nicolai Fechin, as forms swirl around the beautiful stillness of the woman’s face.
