Stanley Spencer: 'Heaven in a Hell of War'
December 20, 2014


An exhibition of work by acclaimed British painter and ACS member Stanley Spencer is currently on display at Manchester Art Gallery.


Detailing the artists’ own wartime experiences as a hospital orderly in Bristol and as a soldier on the Macedonian front, Heaven in a Hell of War features a range of large-scale works which explore richly detailed and often uniquely domestic, rather than combative, recollections from the front line of the First World War.
