Abstract study
Sanda Blow was born in 1925 and studied at St Martin's School of Art. After the war she studied at the Royal Academy Schools and in 1947 moved to Italy for a year where her painting was influenced by the work of her friend Alberto Burri a member of the Arte Povere movement.

During the 1950's Blow was one of the pioneering abstract painters who introduced into British art a new expressive informality, using materials such as sack cloth and sawdust. In later years her palette brightened and she often incorporated painted canvas cut outs in her oil paintings. Many of Blow's paintings were large in scale and she would work out ideas for compositions on small pieces of paper which are spontaneous and vibrant.
Blow kept studios in London and Cornwall returning to St |Ives in the mid 1990's. She was elected R.A. in 1978 and a retrospective of her work was held at the R.A. in 1994.
