Current Exhibition 2014 - Centenary of First World War 

2 April - 2 November 2014

The summer's exhibition at the Gallery, open now until November 2014, 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.

 

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.

 

 

Please Can You Help Find Stolen Spencer Painting?

The Trustees of the Gallery regret to inform you that we suffered a burglary. One painting was stolen, Cookham from Englefield, painted by Spencer in 1948. Click here for more information.
