John Spencer-Churchill

JOHN SPENCER-CHURCHILL

John Spencer-Churchill,  Nephew of Sir Winston Churchill was an English painter who once lived in the Molino de Rosario, situated next to the church in Plaza San Miguel.

Born in London in 1909, the budding artiste headed to Spain during his early adulthood, where, in 1934, he married a Spanish artist called Angela Culme Seymour.

He lived briefly at Chartwell Manor with Sir Winston Churchill, before returning to Spain to set up his studio in the centre of Torremolinos, but his marriage failed after just two years and he returned to London. He died in 1992. Some of his most famous paintings include, St Pauls on a Foggy Day, Battersea Bridge at Dawn, and Grand Bridge at Blenheim, and his works often fetch upwards of 2,000 euros at auction.
