Paintings by Revered Former UK PM Churchill to Be Auctioned

LONDON – Sotheby’s in London will auction two paintings by former United Kingdom Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

One of them is his final painting, “The Goldfish Pool at Chartwell” (1962), an almost abstract portrayal of fish in a pond at his former home which is expected to fetch between 80,000 and 150,000 pounds ($106,000-$198,000) at the auction on Nov. 21.

The World War II leader, who had been painting from the age of 40, gifted the painting to his bodyguard, Sergeant Edmund Murray, whose descendants decided to sell it.

The second artwork by the historic Tory PM to go on sale is “Landscape With Two Trees,” a landscape painted in the south of France in 1922 which he gave to Maud Elgie, his children’s nanny from 1919 to 1921.

It is expected to be sold to the highest bidder for around 150,000 pounds, Sotheby’s estimated.
