  • TWO WORKS BY SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL AT SOTHEBY’S

    The art of Sir Winston Churchill is hot.  His Goldfish Pool at Chartwell sold for £1.7 million last year.  Sotheby’s will offer two works by the wartime leader at the Modern British and Post War art sale in London on November 17.  One of is Venice, the other the South of France.  His  Scuola di San Marco in Venice dates from 1951 when he was 77 and is estimated at £250,000-350,000.  An earlier work, St Jean de Vie between Cannes and Grasse is from the 1930’s and is estimated at  £120,000-180,000.

    Lynn Chadwick’s Stabile with Mobile Element comes to the market for the first time. Off the radar for over 60 years and previously only known through the artist’s original sketch it is being sold by the family of its one and only owner, who acquired it in 1954, just two years after it was made.  It is estimated at £400,000-600,000.
