Press Release

Victor Pasmore: Towards a New Reality travels on from Lakeside Gallery, Nottingham to Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, focusing on the period from 1930 to 1969, a time that saw the artist’s transformation from one of Britain’s leading figurative painters to one of its foremost exponents of abstract art – what has been described by distinguished art historian Herbert Read as ‘the most revolutionary event in post-war British art’.

A fascinating picture emerges of the years in the late 1940s and early 1950s when landscapes incorporating increasingly suggestive formal structures led to his first fully abstract paintings and collages. These were followed by constructed reliefs made from pre-formed industrial materials.

The exhibition is curated by Anne Goodchild and Neil Walker, and an illustrated book published by Lund Humphries.
