Churchill by David Cannadine

£25.00

Available

Description

When Winston Churchill suffered most severely from his ‘black dog’ he took to painting in order to express the inexpressible. Throughout his life he would withdraw to paint. His paintings throw fascinating light upon his character and its vicissitudes and thus are key to understanding his personality as a great statesman. As fellow artist Sir Oswald Birley said of him: ‘If Churchill had given the time to art that he has given to politics, he would have been by all odds the world’s greatest painter’. This book, generously illustrated in full colour with examples of his painting, consists of a substantial introduction of great critical and historic importance by Professor David Cannadine but also Churchill’s own writings about painting.
