Last quote by Frances Christie

Apparently, she met Churchill in 1936, and they had a friendship for over 20 years. The Oliviers went to stay at Chartwell [Churchill's family home]. He didn't give his paintings out willy-nilly. He gave them as state gifts, for instance to Eisenhower or Truman, and then the more intimate pictures, he gave to friends and family. Flower pictures for him were very personal and reserved for the people who were particularly close to him, such as his beloved youngest daughter, Mary, so this suggests they were very close.feedback

The latest quote from Frances Christie is: “This sale shows a really different side to her. She is the most glamorous Hollywood star possible, but I think when you see some of the art and furniture, you realise she had quintessentially English taste. Her houses were wallpapered in Colefax & Fowler, there were chintzes and florals and delicate glass and porcelain. She always had cut flowers and it [her house] was peppered with antiques and amazing art.”. It comes from the Churchill's painting, Laurence Olivier's wedding rings...
