  • Churchill with his paintings

The Art of Diplomacy: Winston Churchill and the Pursuit of Painting will display over 30 paintings by Sir Winston Churchill, many of which have never before been publicly exhibited. A selection of these paintings and his personal objects will be coming to Rome's Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum February 13 - March 15, 2015. 

The primary exhibition will open at the Millennium Gate Museum in Atlanta, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the death (January 24, 2015) of the iconic statesman, war-time hero, and Nobel-prize winning historian. In comparison to previous exhibitions of Churchill's work, The Art of Diplomacy presents a novel interpretation that places the act of painting at the center of Churchill's evolving leadership – and, by extension, at the heart of twentieth century history.
