After today - look out, after today...
A couple of weeks or so ago, we posted a bit about David's excellent narration for BBC2's Arena special on the artist Stanley Spencer (02/03/01 NEWS: PICK HIM UP ON CHANNEL TWO ). You may remember that David is a keen collector of Stanley's work, and it was easy to see from the evidence presented why he is. But if you missed the fascinating Arena broadcast, and London is within easy reach, then you will be pleased to learn that Tate Britain starts a major Stanley Spencer retrospective tomorrow the 22nd of March that runs through until the 24th of June 2001. Here's a little bit from The Tate's blurb:
"Stanley Spencer is one of the dominant figures of twentieth-century British art. This major exhibition will bring together over one hundred of his paintings and drawings from private and public collections around the world. It aims to present a concise retrospective of one of Britain's best-loved painters, with emphasis on the particularly intense period of the 1930s."
So if you fancy seeing a bit of Stanley in the erm...paint, then click on the image above to take you to The Tate's page about the exhibition that contains all the information you need to know regarding times, ticket prices etc. See you there, possibly.
