The Ressurrection of Christ & of Everyman by Stanley Spencer 1891-1959



Stanley Spencer, (English painter, 1891-1959) The Resurrection - Reunion 1945


Spencer's Ressurrection paintings focused on the life after death of Everyman, the result of Christ's resurrection for all of mankind.  Spencer depicted graves opening in Cookham churchyards & other local settings with friends & neighbors & relatives arising to the sound of the Last Trumpet.  Spencer was not religious in the conventional sense & believed that organized “religion is a gloomy wretched thing, a depressing atmosphere.” Spencer’s spiritual world was dominated by the “Holy Spirit.” He had a vision of humanity bound together by “the imaginative powers which we all possess” in universal brotherly love.
