  • About the artist
    Victor Pasmore was one of the leading British painters and printmakers of the 20th century. He studied at the Central School of Arts and Crafts and began exhibiting with the London Group in 1930, becoming a member in 1934. He co-founded the Euston Road School in 1937. Pasmore taught at Camberwell School of Art from 1943 to 1949, and it was towards the end of this period that he turned from representational to abstract art. He was awarded the CBE in 1959 and was selected for the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale of 1960. In 1961 he gave up teaching to concentrate on painting and exhibiting more widely. The 1970s were marked by a number of prizes in recognition of his graphic works. Pasmore’s paintings and prints are represented in public collections throughout the world. In 1981 his contribution to British art was recognised when he was made a Companion of Honour, followed two years later with his election as a Royal Academician. He died in Malta in 1998.
