Framed Original PEN & INK drawing of Winston Churchill
Entitled: "TWO BRITONS"
8 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches
Churchill at Chartwell
This charming original pen & ink drawing (8 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches) by the British artist Leonard Moorhouse, is hand-titled: "Two Britons" on the mount in ink and dated "'16" beside the artist's signature in the bottom left hand corner. There are also penciled framing instructions on the verso along with the artist's name penned at the top, but further details are few and the figure accompanying Churchill is unidentified. A one-of-a-kind original, handsomely framed (21 x 24 inches overall).
Bibliographic numbers (in parentheses) are from Frederick Woods' original Churchill bibliography (Woods), as emended by Richard Langworth in his Connoisseur's Guide; and from the new, greatly expanded Churchill bibliography by Ronald Cohen (Cohen).
