A bridge between representation and abstraction

Progression or conversion? See the transformation of Victor Pasmore’s work from lyrical representation to radical abstraction, described by Herbert Read as ‘the most revolutionary event in post-war British art’, from today in the must-see exhibition Victor Pasmore: Towards a New Reality, Djanogly Gallery, @LakesideArts, University of Nottingham...


This exciting display features View on the Cam from Magdalene Bridge, Cambridge, No. 2, 1947, lent by Richard Green Gallery, a single-mindedly modern view of the historic city which documents the seminal moment of Pasmore’s development from soft, Pointilist foliage trailing over the walled gardens of Magdalene College, to the structural formality of the recilinear warehouses on Quayside. A sophisticated exploration of the art of compositional construction, View on the Cam is an elegant balance of nature and architecture, light and space, figuration and abstraction.
