British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is mourning the passing of his mother, painter Charlotte Johnson Wahl.
The Times of London reports Johnson Wahl died “suddenly and peacefully,” at a London hospital Monday.
The Prime Minister once described his mother as the “supreme authority” in his large, close-knit family.
She was a successful portrait and landscapes painter.
Wahl and first husband Stanley Johnson divorced in 1979.
She later married American academic Nicholas Wahl, who died in 1996.
She is survived by four children, including the British prime minister and 13 grandchildren.
Charlotte Johnson Wahl was 79.
