Many people don’t know that in between saving Britain from invasion from the Nazi’s and keeping the Cuban Cigar Industry afloat, Winston Churchill was an avid painter, and a pretty good one at that.
You can see some of his paintings in the very place her painted them at Chartwell, his home in the Surrey countryside. Since most people can’t make the trek, I’ve found as many of the paintings as I could and posted them here. If you find more, let me know and I’ll post them!
Check at the bottom for links to places to buy Churchill’s art as well as some books on his painting. He even wrote a book about painting himself!
Churchill painted “A View From Chartwell” in 1938. Chartwell is considered his own personal Garden of Eden. What’s interesting is that this was painted on the cusp of the beginnings of World War II. A print of this one, I’m proud to say, is on the wall in Anglotopia Towers.
Books on Churchill’s Painting
Winston Churchill Himself wrote a book about painting as a hobby and you can still buy it. It’s definitely on my Christmas list!
This is another book about Churchill’s Paintings.
