Progress of the Soul : Stanley Spencer Vol 2, Hardback Book

Progress of the Soul : Stanley Spencer Vol 2 Hardback

Edited by John Spencer

Part of the Stanley Spencer Autobiography series


Progress of the Soul is the second volume of Stanley's complete letters and writings, charting his return to Cookham at the end of the First World War, his period of adjustment to life in his beloved `village in Heaven', his marriage to artist Hilda Carline and his disastrous relationship with his second wife, Patricia Preece.

During this time he produced some of his most famous paintings, including the great murals at the Sandham Memorial Chapel, Burghclere and The Resurrection, Cookham, yet he continued to write prolifically.

His letters to Hilda and extensive writings reveal his innermost thoughts on love, religion and life - and offer a fascinating insight into the mind of one of the greatest artists of modern times
