  • About the artist
    Victor Pasmore was one of the leading British painters and printmakers of the twentieth 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. Together with William Coldstream, Claude Rogers and Graham Bell, he founded the Euston Road School in 1937. Concerned with developing an objective approach to the depiction of everyday subjects, their paintings depicted realistic subjects in a realistic manner. Pasmore taught at the Camberwell School of Art from 1943 to 1949,and turned from representational to abstract art towards the end of this period. Awarded the CBE in 1959, his work was selected for the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 1960, after which he gave up teaching to focus on his art practice. He received a series of prizes for his graphic works in the 1970s and his work is represented in public collections throughout the world. He was made a Companion of Honour in 1981 and elected a Royal Academician two years later. He died in Malta in 1998.
