Description

  • Vintage photograph from the first meeting of the Council of Europe, the organisation which helped rebuild Europe in the aftermath of WWII.
  • Signed by two of the most important British political leaders of the 20th century.

Winston Churchill (1874 – 1965) was a British statesman who twice served as Prime Minister, and is widely regarded as one of the most influential political leaders of the 20th century.

His leadership of the nation during WWII helped secure victory for the Allies against Nazi Germany, and he played a major role in creating unity throughout Europe after the war.

Churchill also won the Nobel Prize for Literature, became the first honorary citizen of the United States, and was voted as the Greatest Briton of all time in a national poll in 2002.

This photograph was taken during the historic first meeting of the Council of Europe, and features various politicians and statesmen including British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and the future Prime Minister Harold Macmillan.

The photograph mount bears the clear signatures of both Churchill and Macmillan in black ink, along with British diplomat and politician Henry Hopkinson's signature in blue ink below.

The vintage gelatin silver print measures 15.5 x 16.9 cm, bears some slight chipping to the image, and is slightly loose around the corners of the mount.

A superb signed piece capturing one of the most important moments in 20th century European history.
