National Churchill Museum Added Another Original Churchill Painting

FULTON, Mo. -- The National Churchill Museum in Fulton added to its collection of paintings by the legendary British Prime Minister. 

"Churchill found solace in painting," Curator Timothy Riley said. "Churchill found painting to rejuvenate, to relax, refresh, and focus his mind."

Riley today unveiled a 20-by-24, oil-on-canvas landscape entitled "Lake Scene at Norfolk." 

It was painted by Winston Churchill in 1935.

Riley says Churchill's sister-in-law gave him his first set of paint brushes on June 8, 1915, just weeks after a disastrous world war one battle.

The Churchill Museum now owns four of his paintings.

The Monsanto Company donated "Lake Scene at Norfolk" which had purchased it directly from Churchill's granddaughter.
