Charles Spencelayh stands among the most important artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Born in 1865, he began exhibiting at the Royal Academy in 1892, and was still exhibiting there in 1958, the year he died, at the age of ninety-two. He was regarded as something of a mystery man, even to his fellow artists, despite being held in great admiration by many influential collectors during his lifetime, including the royal family.

His talent for portraying the common man with an engaging sense of sentiment combined with a meticulous attention for detail remains unsurpassed. For many years Aubrey Noakes was fascinated by Spencelayh's work and his quiet affection for the artist's style informs every page of this, the first study of Spencelayh. It is a vivid portrait based on lengthy conversations with the artist's only son, with his stepson and executor and on a careful study of his personal papers.

Noakes demolishes the myths that have grown up around Spencelayh - such as the statement that he never painted women - to create a unique dedication to his life and works.
