Churchill Portrait - Feliks Topolski

Here's a brilliant portrait of Winston Churchill painted by a guy I've only just heard of, named Feliks Topolski. It's a good portrait artist that can paint loosely, and with that great offhand energy, but still make it obvious who it's supposed to be. Topolski has that.

It looks like a chaotic mess - one of those paintings that people in "git r done" tank tops look at and say "That's shit. My kid coulda done that!", except that it also looks exactly like Churchill. Some people don't like jazz for the same reason. It can sound like a mess, but if you pay attention, you can recognize the pattern and theme of the tune, especially if it's a cover of a familiar song. So, maybe this is a jazz painting of Winston Churchill?
