FOCUS ON STANLEY SPENCER

With Alice Foster, Art Historian

Stanley Spencer was a unique artist and does not fit comfortably into any artistic movement. The Thames-side village of Cookham in Berkshire, where Spencer lived, was the inspiration for his very personal creative vision, and yet his work triumphed into a universal view of the world.

In this talk, Alice Foster will explore the quirkiness, the comedy and the tragedy in Stanley Spencer’s work.
