Stanley Spencer: Village Life Visionary

Explore Stanley Spencer's uniquely British vision

Stanley Spencer is best known for his huge paintings that treat British village life in the manner of Renaissance frescoes, such as his masterpiece The Resurrection, Cookham, in which the lives (and deaths) of ordinary folk are tenderly offered up to our gaze.

Author and Spencer fan Sîan Pattendon visited the 2008 Spencer exhibition at Tate Liverpool.
