Paintings by Sir Winston Churchill

Sir Winston Churchill was an accomplished landscape painter and first visited the Moroccan city in 1935. Churchill developed a lasting affection for the city, which he considered as “one of the loveliest spots in the whole world”, and would paint it frequently.

The exhibition will also feature 17 paintings by Moroccan artist Mr Hassan El Glaoui – allowing the spectator the perfect opportunity to view paintings of similar landscapes by two very different personalities.
