Stanley Spencer by Eric Newton: Penguin Modern Painters
Stanley Spencer by Eric Newton: Penguin Modern Painters (Penguin Books / 1947)
In keeping with Penguin's brief to bring great literature to the masses, the Penguin Modern Painters series was conceived as a way of bringing art to the people at a time when, because of the war, much art had been removed from public, city-based galleries and packed off for safekeeping within rural collections.
Softcover in very good condition with clean, unmarked pages and no marking or creasing to front or back cover. Elegantly sun-bleached with some light marking to front cover. Original owner's signature in ink together with date of 1948 on inside front cover.
