Cambridge author Nicola Upson’s acclaimed series of novels based on the life of Josephine Tey revealed a talent for shedding new light on the past, combining careful historical detail with a flair for plot and character.

In Stanley and Elsie, she turns her attention to the painter Stanley Spencer, reimagining his life as seen through the eyes of the women who knew him, and in particular his housekeeper Elsie. Elsie offers a fascinating new take on the painter – charismatic and inspirational, obsessive and exhausting, painfully human.

In conversation with Frances Spalding, art historian, critic, biographer and Festival Patron.

Works by Stanley Spencer can be seen in Gallery 1 of the Museum.
