Spencer, a child of a successful industrial family, spent his youth in his native Rhode Island prior to his tutelage under Robert Henri and George Bellows at the Ferrer School in New York. His work shares certain qualities with Precisionist painting, particularly its cubist-realist representation of industry as a potent symbol of American modernism. Spencer’s architectural landscapes are distinguished, however, by their looser brushstroke and subtle tonalities.
