> DESCRIPTION

Drawing played an essential role in the art of British, figurative painter Stanley Spencer. From 1908 to 1912 he studied drawing almost exclusively at the prestigious Slade School of Art in London. Through his skill and proficiency as a draughtsman Spencer transformed his eccentric and visionary imaginings into reality.

The AGO has a collection of almost 200 works on paper by Stanley Spencer and is now a destination for those seeking an in-depth understanding of the artist. This focused installation features drawings gifted to the AGO from private collections in the past five years shown in context with drawings acquired since 1992.
