Free entry

Uncovering the story of a British artist and his influence on 20th century art during the inter-war period.

For the first time in over 50 years, a selection of Gilbert Spencer’s major paintings will be exhibited alongside examples of preparatory studies and illustrative art. Painter, muralist, illustrator, teacher and writer, Spencer’s career spanned more than six decades. During his lifetime he was recognised as one of the leading artists of his generation and one of the most successful art professors; teaching at the Royal College of Art, Camberwell College and Glasgow School of Art. Today, you may know him through his brother and fellow painter Stanley Spencer.

The exhibition will tell the stories of Spencer and his multi-faceted career. These narratives include recalling the time the artist and several of his students were evacuated from London to Ambleside, as well as Spencer’s fascination with landscapes, people and everyday life in rural England.
