The Art of Winston Churchill

An Exhibition at Hillsdale College

Winston Churchill began his hobby of painting at 40 years old. For Churchill, the art of painting—like the art of statesmanship, is mastered only when all of the intricate details involved aim toward a fixed purpose, or in Churchill’s words, “a single unity of conception.” Both arts, if done well, are guided by and reflect timeless principles. 

Churchill produced nearly 600 paintings during his lifetime, nine of which will be on display at Hillsdale College, along with memorabilia from his life and times. This traveling exhibit is organized by the National Churchill Museum at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri.
