Winston Churchill is known today—five decades after his death—as the resolute statesman who led Britain during the Second World War and inspired a nation during its “finest hour.” He was a passionate writer and orator. He wrote over five thousand speeches and published more than forty books and countless articles ranging from African travel journals to essays about oil painting. In 1953 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for “his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.”

There is another picture to be painted of Winston Churchill: the portrait of him as an artist. A Passion for Painting explores Churchill’s most beloved pastime through the eyes of his granddaughter Edwina Sandys. Edwina is a professional artist and sculptor now living in New York City. Her work has graced the cover of Finest Hour and is known for its whimsy and use of brilliant colours.

The book is available exclusively through the National Churchill Museum of the United States in Fulton, MO. To order, please CLICK HERE.
