This exhibition seeks to offer new perspectives on Spencer’s work and contextualise his place in the history of Modern British art.
David Bomberg, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and Mark Gertler are amongst the 17 artists featured in this exhibition marking the 60th anniversary of Spencer's death.
On display are 39 works – 20 from the Stanley Spencer Gallery and 19 spectacular loans from the Ingram Collection. The loans include works by many of the leading lights of 20th-century British art, as well as highly deserving pieces by less well-known figures such as Glyn Philpot and Dod Proctor.
All help us to understand how Spencer’s work fits into the canon of Modern British art at the beginning of the 20th century.
