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. Click

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.
