Lot Essay

'The purely abstract artist will be frustrated in his urge for complete development so long as he confines himself to the surface bound medium of painting alone. For full development, he will have to extend his activities in the actual three-dimensional medium of sculpture or architectural form. This means that surface painting is the beginning, rather than the end, of abstract art.'
(Victor Pasmore (artist's statement), in J. Reichardt, Victor Pasmore, London, 1962).
