Framed Original Vintage MAGAZINE ILLUSTRATION of Winston Churchill
"'7th May, The Meeting of the House of Commons"
The Graphic Supplement
(10 x 12 inches)
Churchill at Chartwell
This evocative and unexpectedly emotive caricature of Winston Churchill was published May 14, 1910 in The Graphic Supplement. Drawn by the noted illustrator Ralph Cleaver, it captures the House one day after the death of King Edward VII. Because of Cleaver's artistry, we are left with a timeless and rather pensive portrait of young Winston Churchill during the period of his greatest Liberal activism as Home Secretary. This is a giclée print on glossy stock, disbound from an original copy of The Graphic, in very good condition. It measures 10 x 12 inches and has been matted and majestically framed (17 x 20 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).
