          This painting is considered to be part of a series of four taking this view as their subject matter, with the overall series demonstrating a gradual progression towards abstraction. The compositional relationship between The Gardens of Hammersmith No. 2 and The Hanging Gardens of Hammersmith No.1 is like that of a reflected image in as much as the arrangement of the gardens and river is more or less reversed.

          Artist details

          Victor Pasmore was an English painter and printmaker and a highly influential abstract artist. His early representational work depicted landscapes, still life and figures and was typical of the Euston Road School which he helped found in 1937. However, in the late forties he embraced abstract art and constructions and became a seminal influence on its teaching. After his move to Malta, his later paintings and prints were influenced by Mediterranean colour and free forms which he claimed were purely abstract and not derived from nature.
