Further archive material is available to view by appointment including sound recordings of those who knew Spencer and a comprehensive photograph archive. Various items of memorabilia that were owned by Stanley Spencer are on permanent display in the Gallery. Of particular interest are the pram that the artist famously used to transport his painting equipment around the village and the delicate brushes he used for the fine detail in his later works.
The research papers of Spencer’s biographer Kenneth Pople (‘Stanley Spencer’ Collins 1991) are also available to view by appointment. They contain many items of correspondence generated during his research (click here for catalogue of Correspondence items) and other documents relating to Spencer acquired or written by the author (click here for catalogue of non correspondence items).
