Pasmore’s break into abstract art was inspired by the artists Piet Mondrian and Paul Klee. Their writings feature nature and the creation of a dynamic harmony in art which stood for the future harmony of society.

Beginning in 1947, he developed a purely abstract style under the influence of Ben Nicholson and other artists associated with ‘Circle’, becoming a pioneering figure of the revival of interest in Constructivism in Britain following the War.

Pasmore’s abstract work, often in collage and/or construction of reliefs, pioneered the use of new materials and was sometimes on a large architectural scale. Herbert Read described Pasmore’s new style as “The most revolutionary event in post-war British art”.


The Artist

Victor Pasmore

British artist and architect Victor Pasmore pioneered the development of abstract art in Britain in the mid 20th century. He was born in Surrey in December 1908 and studied at Summer Fields School in Oxford and Harrow in West London. His first job was as an administrator at the London County Council. Whilst at this position, Pasmore studied painting at the Central School of Art in his spare time. Pasmore experimented with abstract art, after initially painting in a lyrical figurative style with images such as views of the River Thames from Hammersmith akin to Turner and Whistler. In 1934, clear influences of Monet and Cézanne could be seen in work Pasmore presented at one of his first exhibitions in the Zwemmer gallery in London.
