About This Item

U.S.A.: West End Publishing, 2005. (1 of 150 “Special Proofs”) . No Binding. Very Good. 23 x 20 1/2 inches. Winston Churchill was captivated by Chartwell from the moment he laid eyes on it, purchasing the stately house overlooking the Weald of Kent in September 1922. His home and surrounding property became the subject of numerous paintings by Churchill. “View From Chartwell” was completed and first displayed in the studio at Chartwell in 1938, the year of Hitler’s Anschluss. 1938 also was a year of such personal financial peril for Churchill that in March he seriously considered selling Chartwell. On April 2, The Times actually announced that Chartwell was for sale. A few days later, however, Churchill withdrew his beloved home from the market. Throughout the spring and summer he spent as much time as possible there, laboring to complete the final volume of his monumental biography of the first Churchill, Lord Marlborough. During much needed respites from writing, he painted. “View From Chartwell” was the result. This excellent lithographic print was produced with the authorization of The Churchill Trust. It measures 23 x 20 1/2 inches and was issued in a limited edition of 750 prints, preceded by 150 “Special Proofs.” This is one such proof.
