Focussing on the period from 1930 to 1960, this outstanding publication considers the transition of Victor Pasmore (1908-1998) from one of Britain's leading figurative painters to one of its foremost exponents of abstract art. From Pasmore's own writings and those of his contemporaries, a fascinating picture emerges of the years in the late 1940s and early 1950s when lyrical landscapes - incorporating increasingly suggestive formal structures - were suddenly superseded by abstract paintings and collages and then by constructed reliefs. Seeking to explore these decades and later years, the book's featured works include the artist's earliest canvases through to his engagement with the controversial Apollo Pavilion in Peterlee, County Durham. Reproducing works from both public and private collections, this unique publication will stoke interest in an important period in British art history and will shed new light on a crucial stage in Pasmore's long career.
