A new exhibition at the UK's magnificent Blenheim Palace is showcasing recently acquired works of art, including rarely seen works by Sir Winston Churchil, and family portraits from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. "Art and the Churchill Family" is on view through March 16.

Blenheim has a goal to re-acquire key works from the Palace's lost collections, and have recently acquired 15 paintings and 40 miniatures from the Estate of Viscount Churchill, and these are exhibited for the first time in the Long Library. 

Winston Spencer Churchill, born at Blenheim Palace in 1874, was a lover of art and talented artist, spending much time painting the vistas of the Palace.

Visitors have a unique opportunity to view a collection of Churchill’s original paintings in the context of his home. The main works are oil on canvas impressionist-inspired landscapes of some of the places he visited during his lifetime.
