Item 259 - Winston Churchill Catalog 502 (Jun 2017)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $7,500.00 +
Sold Price: $14,793.10 (includes buyer's premium)


Magnificent matte-finish 15 x 18.5 photo of Churchill by legendary portrait photographer Yousuf Karsh, signed in the lower border in fountain pen, "Winston S. Churchill." Also signed in the lower right corner of the image in white ink by the photographer, "Karsh, Ottawa." Professionally and expertly restored to near fine condition, with some lingering staining near the signature in the lower border, and scattered surface repairs to the lower left area of the image. The vast majority of the image, including Churchill's famously stern visage, is clean and entirely devoid of any flaws. This phenomenal portrait, taken in 1941, is said to be one of the most widely reproduced photos of all time. An absolutely iconic pose in an imposing size, this is a truly outstanding signed Churchill photo.
