Artist(s) Biographies:


First published in 1961, Gilbert Spencer’s memoir of his elder brother gives insights into Stanley’s formative years, while vividly re-creating village life in Thames-side Cookham before the Great War. In these affectionate pages, we see student life at The Slade under Tonks and Steer and the brothers’ developing friendships with fellow artists, most notable among them Henry Lamb, ever assiduous in introducing potential buyers. The Carlines and others appear, and there are anecdotes about Eddie Marsh, the noted collector, the formidable Lady Ottoline Morrell and many others.
