Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) was one of the most influential English painters of the twentieth century. Progress of the Soul picks up where Looking to Heaven, Unicorn’s first volume of his collected letters and writings, left off. This collection, edited by Spencer’s grandson and featuring many previously unseen color images, charts the painter’s post-World War I return to Cookham—his beloved “village in Heaven”—and his two tumultuous marriages. During this time, Spencer produced some of his most famous work, including the murals at the Sandham Memorial Chapel and the Resurrection paintings. Progress of the Soul is a firsthand look at this important period in the life and work of a visionary talent.
