Product Description

About the Author

David Coombs has been professionally linked with the visual arts since 1958. Upon the death of Sir Winston Churchill in 1965, Coombs saw the need for an illustrated catalogue of Churchill's pictures. He published this in 1967. In 1998, he curated the largest ever exhibition of Churchill's paintings at Sotheby's in London, which inspired this book. Minnie Churchill is the Director of Churchill Heritage Ltd, which owns the copyright to all the paintings. She is a travel writer, mother of four, and lives in Dorset.

Sir Winston Churchill: Artist Oct. 11 2014
By Bob Drew - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Because Winston Churchill is Winston Churchill, victor in WWII, savior of Britain, Nobel Laureate in Literature, his paintings, while given a nod, are often dismissed as those of a talented amateur, but no artist in the haute monde sense. Such a view in my view is woefully mistaken. Churchill was a fine painter. You sense that when he picked up his brushes, it wasn't to dabble; it was to paint. His focus and concentration were entirely on the canvas. This book demonstrates that the results were most often some first rate art.
