Kemper Art Museum: 13 November 2015

Exhibition Opening: The Paintings of Sir Winston Churchill

Opening Celebration
November 13, 2015
Public opening 7 pm

The Paintings of Sir Winston Churchill offers a unique opportunity to view paintings rarely seen in North America by the British statesman Winston Churchill (1874-1965), one of the most renowned wartime leaders of the twentieth century. Bringing together forty loans from preeminent public and private collections in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States--including the Royal Academy of Arts in London and Chartwell, the historic family estate in Kent, England--this exhibition surveys the full range of his 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 the greatest of hobbies.
