PORTRAIT WINSTON CHURCHILL – Large Mezzotint by Raeburn

Posted on Aug 26, 2012

Large Mezzotint Portrait of Sir Winston Churchill by H. Macbeth Raeburn

A trial proof, showing him full length, in overcoat, cigar and cane in one hand, hat and gloves in the other.
650 mm x 410 mm., C.1940

Henry Macbeth Raeburn (1860 – 1947) was a well know artist and engraver.

This print was purchased from the artist’s widow and has been in my collection for over 20 years. Only a few proof copies are known. An intended edition was never actually published.

There has since been a limited edition of 250 copies commissioned by Peter Harrington in the year 2000.  A very imposing image, in a nice frame protected by UV glass.

Value:  $4000
