Painting as a Pastime
The perfect antidote to the depression that blighted his working life, Sir Winston Churchill took to painting with gusto following his ejection from the Admiralty at the time of the 1915 Gallipoli disaster. At 40 years old, Churchill found in painting a passion that was to remain his constant companion, producing over 500 works. Traditional in style, Churchill painted mainly oil-on-canvas and portraiture, a collection which largely remains in his studio at Chartwell.
