"View at Chartwell":
Painted around 1938, this work features Chartwell with its lake, and the Weald of Kent in the distance.
In the summer of 1922, while on the lookout for a suitable country house, Churchill caught sight of a property near Westerham in Kent, and fell instantly in love with it. Chartwell was to become a much-loved family home and with typical enthusiasm, Churchill personally undertook many major works of construction (largely with his own hands), such as a dam, a swimming pool, the building of a red brick wall to surround the vegetable garden, and the re-tiling of a cottage at the bottom of the garden.
Churchill: The Painter
Churchill's talent was multi-facetted, he was a soldier, politician, wartime leader, writer and historian. In 1915, at the age of 41 Churchill discovered a natural talent as an artist and for the rest of his life he painted enthusiastically. His art embraced many subjects and locations in Britain and around the world. Churchill painted over 500 canvases predominantly of landscapes, but also still lifes and self portraits.
Halcyon Days was founded in 1950. The company is honoured to have been granted royal warrants by Their Majesties The Queen and The Queen Mother, and Their Royal Highnesses Prince Philip and The Prince of Wales as the first ever and only 'Suppliers of Objets d'Art' and is one of only six companies to hold all four royal warrants.
Halcyon Days' antiques, enamels, porcelain and scented candles are incomparable collectors' items, gifts par excellence. They are direct descendants of the rare and beautiful enamels of 18th-century England. They are made by craftspeople in Bilston, the traditional English centre of enamelling on copper. Prized by collectors all over the world, both as tokens of taste and sentiment and as small works of art, they are the antiques of tomorrow.
