Signed Winston Churchill portrait going for almost $200.000



A portrait of Winston Churchill that he signed as a gift for Joseph Stalin at the height of World War II is going on sale for $195,000.


The picture of the British prime minister is inscribed by Churchill, “To Marshal & Premier Stalin, who at the head of the Russian Armies & the Soviet Government broke the main strength of the German military machine & helped us all to open paths to Peace, Justice & Freedom.”

The piece -available now on the Web site of Moments in Time- was intended to be given to the Communist leader at a conference in 1944, but was discarded and replaced when it was discovered its frame covered the inscription.
