Vera Spencer, born 1926

Vera Spencer was born in Prague and moved to England in 1936. She studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and the Central School of Textile Design in London from 1946 to 1949.

She actively participated in the Post-War abstract movement, exhibiting widely on the continent in the 1950s with artists including Jean Arp and Sonia Delauney, and with St Ives’ artists Adrian Heath, Terry Frost, Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Roger Hilton at some of the foremost London galleries, amongst them, Gimpel Fils, the Redfern Gallery and the Artists’ International Association.

Vera Spencer’s work has been included in many of the most important shows of abstract art of that period and in 2007 a major solo exhibition ‘Paintings and Collages 1950s -1960s’ was held at Paisnel Gallery, London.
