This stunning original drawing comes to us courtesy of one of America’s premiere illustrators, C.F. Payne. It is a 9x12” ink illustration on textured paper depicting famed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill walking up the steps of the Prime Minister’s official residence and office, 10 Downing Street. This is a fantastic piece in Payne’s unmistakeable inking style, and would be a delight to add to your illustration collection. Signed “C.F.” in the lower right corner.
