Pam has taught in London art schools for over 30 years and now lives in West Dorset. Her talk, ‘The Journey Towards Abstraction’, looks at aspects of paintings that led artists towards a new way of painting in the 20th century. These include early cave painting, Giotto, John Constable, Van Gogh, Ben Nicholson, Sonia Delauney, Mark Rothko and Bridget Riley.
