Summary

La Guerra Victor Pasmore

Victor’s systematic study of abstractionism includes the great artists Kandinsky, Mondrian and Arp. During the post-war years in the 1940s he also became interested in architecture and town planning. Victor's belief is that combining abstract art with architecture can embrace the contradictions of the human spirit.
