Current Exhibition  - Paradise Regained

6 November 2014 - 29 March 2015

The current exhibition at the Gallery, open until March 2015, is entitled 'Paradise Regained. Spencer in the Aftermath of the First World War'.
The theme, timed to coincide with the 2014 Centenary of the Great War, examines the effect this momentous event had upon Stanley Spencer's art.  On display are key paintings from the period through which the artist sought to regain the artistic vision he feared lost as a result of the trauma of war.  Also exhibited are works and supplementary material about Spencer's wartime experiences in Macedonia and the planning of the Burghclere Chapel.

The Cookham Walk

The Gallery has published a new Booklet entitled the Cookham Walk - Stanley Spencer's Village in Heaven. This will allow visitors to walk round and view the various locations where Stanley worked on his paintings of Cookham. The booklet can be purchased at the Gallery.

 

This Gallery is dedicated to the life and work of Sir Stanley Spencer RA. (1891 - 1959)

The Stanley Spencer Gallery was first opened in 1962, three years after the artist's death. It stands as a lasting memorial to the man who became synonymous with the village of Cookham. He loved his home; it gave him the strength and comfort he needed to be able to allow his imagination to soar and to fully exploit his genius talent for drawing and painting.
