From the gallery:

Widely known as the greatest statesman of the 20th century and the savior of Western civilization, a Nobel Prize winner, and the subject of a recent Academy Award–nominated film, more people than ever are taking an interest in Sir Winston Churchill (1874–1965), yet few are aware that he was an avid painter.

Eleven oil paintings by Churchill from the 1920s to 1940s, from the collection of the family of the late Julian Sandys, the eldest of Churchill’s grandchildren, will join the spotlight in “The Paintings of Sir Winston Churchill.”

Sir Winston Churchill, “The Sunken Garden at La Dragonniere, Cap Martin,” c. 1930s, oil on canvas, 20 x 30 in.

The nine landscapes along with a coastal scene and a still life depict friends’ estates and gardens, as well as family vacation spots, including some of Churchill’s favorite travel destinations in France and Morocco.
