Synopsis: When Winston Churchill wasn’t busy helping make the world safe for democracy, he was most likely painting. He took up the hobby in 1915, finding in it a path out of the crippling depression that had been brought on by his ouster from the cabinet in the wake of Gallipoli, and he continued to work at it—and enjoy it—for the rest of his life.
This book tells the story of Churchill’s life through his paintings. It gathers more than five hundred images, primarily of Churchill’s work, and sets them alongside, and in the context of, an engaging, accessible account of his life and work. Published with the full cooperation of the Churchill family, it is the only definitive book on his paintings. A perfect companion read to Churchill’s Painting as Pastime, is sure to be of interest to the many readers who continue to thrill to stories of his outsized life and achievements.
