Stanley Spencer by His Brother
London: Victor Gollancz,
1961. Second printing.
An adulatory yet revealing portrait of the artist by his brother, who also provides the illustrations, in the form of loose ink drawings.
Although Stanley remains something of an enigma, the background to their lives and the attitudes of Edwardian England provide a fascinating glimpse into a lost world, that somehow created a painter of genius.
Hardcover with slightly worn jacket.
