Charles Spencelayh was a painter of figure subjects, genre scenes and portraits; he was also a miniaturist and an etcher. He is famous for his cluttered interiors with old men or characteral figures, painted in great detail.

Spencelayh first studied at the National Art Training School (later the Royal College of Art), and continued his training in Paris where he exhibited at the Paris Salon. Spencelayh also exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1912 until his death in 1958, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, of which he became a member of in 1897. He was also elected an honorary member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and Vice President of the British Watercolour Society. He held a one-man show at the Sunderland Art Gallery in 1936.

Spencelayh’s work is represented in several museums including the Tate Gallery, Manchester City Art Gallery and the Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston.
