The Place to Find All Things Churchill

The Paintings of Sir Winston Churchill

November 13, 2015 to February 14, 2016

Location: Kemper Art Museum, St Louis, Missouri 


A new exhibition, The Paintings of Sir Winston Churchill, offers a unique opportunity to view a curated collection of paintings by the British statesman Winston Churchill (1874–1965) rarely seen in North America. Churchill is considered by many as one of the most renowned, and many say greatest, wartime leaders of the twentieth century.

The exhibition brings together forty of Sir Winston’s works loaned from preeminent public and private collections in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States. Paintings in the exhibition include those from the collection of the Royal Academy of Arts in London and Chartwell, the historic family estate in Kent, England. This exhibition surveys the full range of Churchill’s art, from landscapes and seascapes to still lifes and portraits—beginning with his earliest work in 1915. The paintings on view represent each of the five decades in which Churchill pursued what was for him one of his greatest of passions.
