“Happy are the painters for they shall not be lonely. Light and colour…..will keep them company to the end, or almost to the end, of the day.” -Winston Churchill, 1921 December. (“Painting as a Pastime”, Strand Magazine; Thoughts, 220-21.)
The Churchill Centre has recently become aware of a large painting by Sir Winston Churchill, offered for sale for the first time in a number of years. Churchill’s paintings, especially in this size, infrequently come to market and the current owner has asked our assistance in finding a suitable buyer.
The seller has generously agreed to make a donation to The Churchill Centre if a member or friend purchases the painting, so we are reaching out to you for your assistance. The seller’s donation will be used to support The Churchill Centre’s important work in educating the world about the thoughts, words and deeds of Sir Winston Churchill and their relevance for today.
If you or anyone you know would be interested in acquiring this painting, please contact TCC’s Executive Director, Lee Pollock, at [email protected] or (312) 658-6027 for more details.
