  • Scottish Art
This portrait was completed shortly after the First World War in which Churchill served successfully as First Lord of the Admiralty, Minister of Munitions and Secretary for War with responsibility for demobilisation. The most vigorous and highly finished among a series representing contemporary statesmen, the picture was painted in preparation for his great commission ‘Statesmen of the Great War’. Churchill was a Member of Parliament for Dundee from 1908-22. He went on to serve as Prime Minister during the Second World War from 1940-45.
