Winston Churchill


gelatin silver print, mounted, signed in ink on the mount, framed, 1941, printed later

Please note the colours and shades in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings.


This incredibly detailed print is in generally good condition. The lower portion is very gently rippled.


Under close inspection the following are visible: a cluster of 3-inch hairline scratches running horizontally in the centre right; and some scattered pinpoint-sized impressions with miniscule breaks of the emulsion in the centre and lower portions. Recent professional treatment has successfully reduced the visual impact of the latter. None of the aforementioned are impacting the sitter's head nor do they detract from the overall appearance of this photograph.
