Stanley Spencer Rembered is an anthology of people’s memories of a popular artist, as well as a glimpse into mid-twentieth century social history and its effects on Cookham, “a village in heaven” as Spencer described it.  This book supplements more learned works by focusing on the humorous, adaptable and sociable side of the artist, who, by his own admission, had many “selves”.  There are photographs of him at work and in groups with his family and friends.  Spencer, with so many unfulfilled dreams, appears finally to have come to terms with reality in his own native village.
