The responsibilities assumed Winston Churchill during the second world war prevented him from approaching brushes later. It should be recalled that, after the Casablanca Conference in January 1943, he took a day off and made him to paint the Tower of the mosque Katoubia in Marrakesh. After the second world war, and rejected by the electorate, Churchill travelled fairly and painted a lot. His later paintings date back to 1957, when he was 83 years of age. The hero of World War II, and winner of the Nobel Prize in literature in 1953 for his vast work, painted over five hundred works. Already near the end of the road, Churchill wrote: when you go to heaven, I think spend much of my first million years painting and thus get to the bottom of the issue. He is known especially for its landscape scenes, many of which he painted while on holiday in the South of France and Morocco.
During his life he painted dozens of paintings, of which some still exposed in his study of Chartwell. It was evident that in what was (reading, writing, painting, Government Affairs, the construction of a brick wall, politics or war) its concentration was total. Paint challenged his intellect and freeing your creative impulses, awakening his sense of proportion and beauty. His paintings are really as an itinerary because he was in the Middle East, and there are paintings of Jerusalem; and he painted the pyramids in Cairo. And in Scotland, Norfolk, France and Italy, also surrendered to brushes and fabrics, such as in the United States and Canada. In his house, in Kent, on the other hand, painted almost exclusively at home. Their topics? The House, garden and landscapes of the environment.
