Spencer’s World: The Art of Stanley Spencer

Stanley Spencer is one of the most enigmatic painters of the 20th century. He was a painter of imaginative and religious subjects, of landscapes and portraits and an official war artist of both World Wars. His phenomenal output is considered unique, diverse and complex covering many topics, ranging from religious piety to sexual obsession. With canvases focusing on the tranquillity of rural life, along with highly sexualised nudes and Bible scenes imagined in a sleepy English village, the works of Stanley Spencer mark him out as one of Britain’s most distinctive and unusual artists.
