Stanley Spencer by Duncan Robinson( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) was the most original British painter of his era. This catalogue celebrates the achievements of an artist who continued to explore and develop over five decades. By 1914, aged only twenty-two, Spencer had completed a series of important religious works set in the Thameside village of his childhood. He experienced the First World War as a loss of Eden, yet his art was opened to complexities unguessed at in his Cookham innocence. An essay by Patrick Wright focuses on Spencer in the 1920s, uncovering a new cultural milieu and pointing to hidden themes in the murals he painted for Burchclere Chapel. Timothy Hyman charts Spencer's work as a process of autobiographical revelation, tracing his transition from the monumental Christian idealism of Giotto to his confrontation with raw reality and sexual fantasy in the crisis years of the 1930s. Both essays locate Spencer alongside his contemporaries, such as Otto Dix, Max Beckmann and Diego Rivera. Reproducing a large selection of his finest works, including several that are little known, this book offers fresh perspectives based on current research and presents a ground-breaking survey of the artist

With the accomplished photographer David Finn at his side, Robinson presents the building to us inside and out - from its formal welcoming atrium to the armchair comfort of its galleries, to the serene and well-ordered offices and study spaces - as a successful, living museum. Along the way on this very personal guided tour, he enlightens us as only he could on the history of the museum, on the experience of viewing this particular art collection in its setting, and on a host of architectural and decorative details, from carpets and door-knobs to vaulted skylights

"Robert Lehman was a member of the first generation of American collectors to embrace what we call modern art. This volume catalogues 207 nineteenth- and twentieth-century European drawings that are now part of the Robert Lehman Collection at the Metropolitan Museum. More than three-quarters of these drawings are French, but there are also sheets from Italy, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, and Great Britain. Most are from the nineteenth century, but Robert Lehman also acquired, in some cases from the artists themselves, a number of drawings made during his own lifetime."--Jacket
