Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) is one of the outstanding painters of the twentieth century. Highly controversial and single-minded in the pursuit of his personal vision, he often suffered neglect and hostility, and he has tended to be seen as an eccentric visionary. However, his contribution to British art and his true stature as an artist are now internationally recognized. Keith Bell's comprehensive catalogue raisonne of Spencer's work was recognized as a major contribution to Spencer studies when it was published in 1992, and it remains the essential reference work. For those who would rather enjoy the many superb illustrations and the illuminating narrative for their own sake (without the detailed catalogue that appears in the original), this abridged edition is now issued in paperback at a highly competitive price.

About the Author

Keith Bell teaches Art History at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada. He was curator of the major Royal Academy exhibition 'Stanley Spencer RA' in 1980.

Industry Reviews

'There can be no question that this unusually handsome, well illustrated and meticulously researched volume will be the point of departure for all subsequent evaluations of Spencer.' (The Times)

Marvellous book about a very special artist


Cannot put this book away on a shelf. It's a lovely catalogue and shows the artistic evolution of this very special artist.
