STANLEY SPENCER (1891-1959)

Spencer's  paintings depict for us the lives and deaths of ordinary village people.

Three of his many religious paintings put us in mind of two important events that take place in Ireland this year (2018):

(1) A  referendum on the Repeal of the 8th Amendment to our Constitution which reads: "The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right."

(2) The World Meeting of Families which takes place in Dublin.
