Description

This is a limited edition print, #359 of 450 copies, in mint condition, measuring 24 x 30 inches, signed, titled and numbered by the artist in pencil, and here beautifully framed in oak (30 x 35 inches overall).

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.”
