Across almost 50 years, Winston Churchill produced more than 500 paintings, and it became his primary means of relaxation from the strain of public affairs. Along with a substantial introduction to this aspect of Sir Winston's life by David Cannadine, this fascinating collection includes a dozen of Churchill's essays and speeches on art, spanning 1912-54, plus commentary on his paintings by Augustus John, John Rothenstein, and Thomas Bodkin. Also included are 16 pages of color reproductions, and Churchill proves to be a skillful painter indeed—in a style blending 19th-century Romanticism and early modernism—depicting his homes at Blenheim Palace and Chartwell, but also Egypt, Morocco, and the Mediterranean.
