Framed SIGNED Official Wartime PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPH of Winston Churchill


By: Walter Stoneman

11 1/2 /14 1/2 inches. (Framed 23 x 28 inches)

Item Number: 204958


A decisively over-sized official print of Winston Churchill’s definitive wartime formal portrait, half-length, posed at his Downing Street desk, taken by Walter Stoneman for J. Russell Sons. The image, which measures 11 1/2 /14 1/2 inches, is here signed and dated in ink on the mount beneath the print:

“Winston S. Churchill 1943”

The print is also inscribed in pencil on the mount, just beneath the image: “J. Russell Sons” and “63 Baker Street.”

The photograph has been matted in a linen-faced mat and sumptuously framed in ebonized walnut (23 x 28 inches overall). There is some faint silvering to the edges of the image and the ink signature has nominally faded but, in sum, it is simply spectacular.
