For the first time, this book surveys the career of renowned British artist Victor Pasmore (1908-1998) through the artist's own writings. Fully illustrating his most important works, from early representational paintings through to the abstract reliefs for which he is perhaps best known, Victor Pasmore:Writings and Interviews presents an intimate account of the development of a rich and varied body of work that significantly included participation in the design of the new town Peterlee, in County Durham. His pursuit of abstract art can be read in his correspondence with Ben Nicholson while personal writings from Pasmore's time spent in Malta describe his experimentation with printmaking techniques and his investigation of Surrealism.

The most important new book on Victor Pasmore for many years, this is an essential read both for enthusiasts and newcomers to his work.

Alastair Grieve is an art historian, previously at the University of East Anglia and the University of Leeds, and curated the Arts Council Touring Exhibition Victor Pasmore. He is the author of Constructed Abstract Art in England after the Second World War (2005) and The Sculpture of Robert Adams (1992).
