Victor Pasmore

Victor Pasmore in his studio, 1965 by John Pasmore

Victor Pasmore was one of Britain’s most influential abstract artists. Born in Chelsham, Surrey, he later moved to London where he studied painting part-time at the Central School of Arts & Crafts. He began painting landscapes, still life and figures but later became well-known as an abstract artist, producing paintings, collages and constructions.

His Apollo Pavilion, built in the late 1960s in Peterlee, is one of England’s earliest large-scale works of public art. It paved the way for an explosion in publicly-commissioned art. Pasmore’s work can be found in collections around the world including Tate.

Victor Pasmore is represented worldwide by Marlborough Fine Art.
