Study for hated Churchill portrait immortalised in The Crown set to fetch £800,000 at auction

André Zlattinger, Sotheby’s Head of Modern British and Irish Art said: “The name Churchill evokes for each person a different snapshot of a multifaceted man. In this rare portrait, Churchill is caught in a moment of absent-minded thoughtfulness, and together with the backstory of its creation, it gives the impression of a man truly concerned with his image.
