Bequeathed by Sir Edward Marsh through the Contemporary Art Society 1953© Estate of Stanley Spencer
Self -Portrait 1914 (Tate)

So who was Stanley Spencer ?
Born in Cookham, a truly distinctive student at the Slade, studying alongside such luminaries as Paul Nash, Dora Carrington and Christopher Nevinson. Acclaimed as highly influential on mid twentieth century painters such as Hockney, Freud, Bacon, and latterly, Emin.… David Bowie was a collector of Spencer works, Billy Connolly is an enthusiast….  Stanley continually surprises those who get to know him.… will you ? 

A Spencer Masterpiece as you’ve never seen (or heard it !!) before.

Just a bit of fun but we thought we’d share it with you.  Over 30,000 people so far have enjoyed it on Twitter.
