A sketchbook by Stanley Spencer, c 1919-1924 with one loose sketch of Gilbert Spencer by Stanley Spencer, c 1906-1908.
The sketchbook spans Spencer's time spent with the Slessers in Bourne End from late 1919-1920, with Muirhead Bone and his wife at Petersfield in 1921 and his stay with Henry Lamb in Poole, Dorset in April 1923 where he produced designs for what would later become the Sandham Memorial Chapel at Burghclere. The sketchbook is significant in that it includes initial ideas for a number of post-First World War religious works, including some paintings in the Tate collection, notably Tate N04117 Tate N04926 and Tate, N04239. It also includes a number of designs for Sandham Memorial Chapel at Burghclare which are amongst some of the earliest sketches that Spencer created for this commission.
