While serving as an orderly at a military hospital during the First World War, the artist Stanley Spencer met Desmond Chute, the aesthetic son of a Bristol theatre family, who introduced him to classical literature, including the Confessions of St Augustine. Illustrated with facsimiles and drawings that shed light on Spencer’s artistic development, these 31 letters document the men’s friendship, Spencer’s service in Macedonia and his memories of the village of Cookham.
