Winston Churchill: Painting on the French Riviera – Paul Rafferty
Discovering painting at the age of 40, Sir Winston Churchill revelled in his new pastime. He went on to produce over 550 paintings, with over 130 of them on the French Riviera. Fellow artist and Riviera resident Paul Rafferty has tracked down many of the locations Churchill used in Provence, an area the great man so aptly called ‘paintatious’.
Many of these locations are newly discovered and his ‘fearless impressions’ stand alongside to illustrate how Churchill captured them on canvas.
