Unity Spencer: Lucky to be an Artist

24 March - 24 April 2015

The Fine Art Society was proud to stage the first West End survey of work by Unity Spencer, daughter of the celebrated twentieth century British artist, Sir Stanley Spencer . The exhibition also marked the publication of Unity's candid autobiography Lucky to be an Artist.


The exhibition consisted of fifty oils by Unity of all periods, together with etchings. Alongside these works, the gallery exhibited  paintings by her father, her mother Hilda Carline, her uncles Gilbert Spencer and Richard Carline, and her grandfather George Carline. It was a significant opportunity to appreciate Unity's work within the context of her unique family heritage.
