Product description


"The notable 20th-century artist kept journals throughout his life, containing both his notes and sketches. This is the first of a three-volume illustrated set, publishing his abridged journals for the first time and giving insights into how he worked." --The Bookseller

"This exquisitely produced book is a labour of love, assembled by Stanley Spencer's grandson from the artist's papers.....I hope volumes two and three follow shortly." --Lynn Barber - The Times

Stanley Spencer s prose lacks the consistency of his painting. It can be tangled and opaque, straggly and shapeless. But it shows at all times the profundity of his artistic vision, and it contains moments of transcendent beauty. --Mail on Sunday

About the Author

Born in Cookham in Berkshire, England, Stanley Spencer was well known for his paintings depicting biblical scenes. He received numerous awards and great recognition throughout his life and was knighted in 1958. His journals are held by the Tate Gallery Archive."
