Background: VISNEWS cameras at London's 'Mecca' of art -- the Royal Academy -- filmed an exhibition of 61 paintings by the World's best known Honorary Academician Extraordinary ... Sir Winston Churchill.
A realist, concentrating on landscapes and still life, Sir Winston conveys to canvas some of his instinctive courage and dauntless energy. A visitor, on entering the galleries, will immediately become aware of the artist's emotional response to the effects of nature and visual truth, and will be conscious of the enormous satisfaction Sir Winston has received during more than 40 years of applying paint to canvas with a bold and joyous brush.
To the 35 paintings recently returned from an extremely successful tour of the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, breaking records of attendance on their way, have been added 26, mostly from the artist's studio at Chartwell.
The exhibition ranges in dates from 1916 to 1958. A number of these works have been seen in the Royal Academy before (since 1947 Sir Winston has contributed forty-three paintings to the Summer Exhibition, without a break.)
