- Pasmore is considered to be one of the key exponents of 20th-century British art. Among his many accomplishments, Pasmore is known for the introduction of Basic Design, which was a radical new form of artistic training in the 1950s.
This artwork was donated by the Pasmore family to Malta’s National Collection in 2012. It is regarded as a key component in the MUŻA narrative. When seeing this artwork, one is pulled in by the size of the canvas and by the vibrant colours. The blue is the dominant colour in the composition which is highly enhanced by the use of green. This vibrant palette was developed by Pasmore while he was living in Malta. Another interesting element is the use of spray; a technique which he started using in 1963 and developed extensively in the late 60’s and 70’s.
