COOKHAM---David Bomberg, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and Mark Gertler are amongst the seventeen artists featured in Counterpoint - Stanley Spencer and his Contemporaries, an exhibition that seeks to offer new perspectives on Spencer’s work and contextualise his place in the history of Modern British art. The presentation, which marks the 60th anniversary of the artist’s death, is comprised of thirty-nine works – twenty from the Stanley Spencer Gallery and nineteen spectacular loans from the Ingram Collection. The loans include works by many of the leading lights of twentieth century British art, as well as highly deserving pieces by less well-known figures such as Glyn Philpot and Dod Proctor. [More]
