Natasha, first and foremost, congrats on a well detailed and informative website!! ( . . .) [It's a] coincidence that you live in Kansas City, Mo. because one of my other favourite paintings is owned by your city-based Hallmark Card Co. (entitled Frankfort Beach, Jamaica) by none other than Sir Winston Churchill who happened to copy 2 famous paintings by JSS. They were Wineglasses (1875) and Ruined Cathedral Arras (1918) - owned at that time by their mutual friend Phillip Sassoon. The copies are remarkably done; worth checking out.

You can see the copies in the new book "Winston Churchill, his life and paintings"

Wow, yeah Hallmark Cards headquarters is just a couple of miles away. I’ll have to see if they have any of this on public display

I have seen some of Churchill’s paintings in Fulton Missouri (where he made the “Iron Curtain” speech) they have a museum about him and even part of the Berlin wall at Westminster College. His water colors are wonderful!
