Sir Stanley Spencer

Spencer, Sir Stanley, 1891–1959, English painter. In his landscapes and his often highly erotic portraits and religious-allegorical scenes, Spencer's paintings express a highly personal magic realism. His series of war murals in All Souls', Burghclere, Hampshire reflect the impact of his experiences in World War I. Other well-known paintings include the Resurrection (Tate Gall., London); Jubilee Tree (Art Gall. of Toronto); and Christmas Stockings (Mus. of Modern Art, New York City).
