Bringing together works from the gallery's own collection with loans from Aberdeen and Leeds in order to highlight the breadth of the painter's output.

Although best known for the commissions he produced as an official war artist, Spencer's oeuvre was far more diverse. Passionate, spiritual works are joined by those reflecting his interest in the natural world – particularly the rural surrounds of his beloved hometown, Cookham, which he described as 'a village in heaven'.

There are also examples inspired by his personal life, depicting loved ones, neighbours and local villagers.
