View from Chartwell, a limited and numbered lithograph reproduction of Churchill's c.1938 painting of his beloved country home, Chartwell Hand-numbered copy 331 of 750
London: Sir Winston Churchill Trust, 2005. Limited and numbered edition. This limited and numbered lithograph of an original painting by Winston S. Churchill beautifully combines two of the inspirational refuges of his relentlessly eventful life – painting and his country home, Chartwell. The painting is a view “of Chartwell and its lakes showing the view in the background of the Kentish Weald that so attracted Churchill to purchase the house.” The original, painted circa 1938 on the eve of the Second World War, measures 36 x 24 inches and is held in The Studio at Chartwell by The National Trust. (see Coombs, Fig 103, C 286) This lovely reproduction, one of 750 copies, is a “lithograph on cotton paper with serigraphy”. This copy is hand-numbered on the lower left blank margin “331/750” and hand-titled on the lower center blank margin “View from Chartwell”. At the lower right is a facsimile signature “Winston S.
