Still Life with a Skull

WAG 3152


Pasmore was a member of the Euston Road school and was primarily concerned with realism, but he became a leading exponent of abstraction and relief construction. This work of the middle 1940s signalled a period of change in the artist’s development. His interest in the relationship of pure geometrical forms is already in evidence in this work, which was cut down in order to create a greater feeling of intimacy.
