Stanley Spencer

9 05 2015

Stanley Spencer was one strange man. You can see it in his paintings. It is difficult to comprehend that he was born in the late 1800s. His work seems so contemporary. He seems to have so many stories to tell. Each canvas is like a short story. His paintings of historical events look like events of his own time. And the figures in them appear almost like caricatures of real people. Exaggerations. Everything is a commentary. Wonderful work.
