When Sir Winston Churchill discovered painting at the age of forty, he reveled in his newfound pastime. He went on to produce more than 550 paintings, over 130 of them of the French Riviera. His 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 Churchill’s “fearless impressions” stand alongside them to illustrate how he captured them on canvas.

Rafferty became familiar with Churchill’s paintings in 2008 in Provence and was soon fascinated by them. Winston Churchill: Painting on the French Riviera is Rafferty’s record and exploration of the people and places Churchill captured in his art.
