Description: Edwina Sandys was born December 1938 at No. 79 Chester Square, London, the second child of Winston and Clementine Churchill's eldest daughter, Diana, and the politician Duncan Sandys. Following family tradition, she was christened in the crypt of the House of Commons. Her grandfather was the first painter Edwina ever saw at work. "When he was painting, he was totally absorbed," she has recalled. "I think – well, I know for myself – that painting uses a different part of your brain and your whole being. So it was a great outlet for him, a complete contrast to the affairs of state. One thing that is clear from his paintings is his love of life. He went at it with relish and gusto."

This is the first comprehensive volume, spanning four decades of the provocative and beautiful art of Edwina Sandys. It has been SIGNED by the author on the title page.
