Victor Pasmore was a British painter, printmaker, and creator of constructions - who pioneered the development of abstract art in Britain in the 1940’s and 1950. His art prints can be found in many Public Collections around the world including: Tate Britain and the Royal Academy of Arts in London, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He was an unusual artist, having achieved eminence as both a figurative and abstract artist. Studying painting part-time at the Central School of Art, he was associated with the formation of the Euston Road School and the first post-war exhibition of abstract art. After experimenting with abstraction, Victor Pasmore worked for a time in a lyrical figurative style, painting views of the River Thames and splendid female nudes. But he was especially a leading figure in the promotion of abstract art whose work, often in collage and construction of reliefs, pioneered the use of new materials. Herbert Read described Pasmore's new style as; "The most revolutionary event in post-war British art".
