Best known as a politician, Sir Winston Churchill was a skilled painter and used his painting as a way to detach from his busy life of political obligations. Artist Winston Churchill painted approximately 500 paintings over the span of his painting career. Winston Churchill’s paintings, which were invariably in oils, ranged in subject from soldiers at wartime to gardens and natural landscapes.
Since he was a writer and a politician, Winston Churchill’s artwork was often exhibited or submitted under pseudonyms, as he felt it would ensure it was accepted on its own merit and not for his name alone. Artist Winston Churchill never did one-man exhibits or appeared at exhibitions in person as he didn’t paint for fame or money but for his own relaxation and pleasure.
