A painting by Winston Churchill, ‘Troops Going to the Front,’ which depicts soldiers leaving their families to embark on the First World War is expected to sell for £250,000 at an auction.

Painted in 1927 ‘Troops Going to the Front’   was inspired by a photograph taken by FJ Mortimer 10 years earlier.

According to Lydia Wingfield-Digby, an art specialist at Sotheby’s where the painting would be auctioned,  the artwork is a really rare piece of artwork by Winston Churchill.

“‘He was a prolific artist but would paint to relieve himself from the political pressures. He would normally paint views while on holiday to switch off so only a few pieces depict war.” – she added.
