Lecture: Churchill and Art: Painting as more than a Pastime
This event marks the end of Churchill 2015, a unique international celebration of the life and legacy of Sir Winston Churchill, fifty years after his death, sixty years after his final resignation as prime minister, and seventy five years after his ‘finest hour’ leading the fight against fascism in 1940
Churchill discovered the therapeutic value of painting at a dark time in his life, and it remained a constant source of solace and pleasure thereafter. But his art also mirrored the ups and downs of his political career, and was of especial importance during his later years of greatness and fame.
On 17 December 2015 Sir David Cannadine FBA is Dodge Professor of History at Princeton University and will be speakign about Churchill's relationship with painting.
