Iconic vintage matte-finish 3.5 x 5.5 portrait of Winston Churchill by Vivienne of London, signed in the lower border in fountain pen, "Winston S. Churchill." Affixed to a same-size mount and in very good to fine condition, with light surface scuffing and slight fading to ink. Encapsulated and graded by PSA/DNA as "NM-MT 8."

Vivienne (1889-1982) was a leading society portrait photographer who began as an assistant to her husband Ernest and their son, Antony. In 1949, Antony, by then making a career photographing actors in Hollywood, married Churchill’s daughter Sarah, an actress. Both families became friends and Vivienne made many portraits of Churchill. This is one of her most enduring images.
