SIR WILLIAM ROTHENSTEIN SIGNED DATED 1942

WWII RAF MILITARY PORTRAIT DRAWING FRAMED

 

a portrait drawing signed and dated by the reknowned Portrait artist Sir William Rothenstein (1872-1945)- the portrait  is signed and dated in the bottom right hand corner:

WM ROTHENSTEIN

DEC 31 -42

during the World War II period appears to be of a distinguished RAF military officer - with a badge with 'VR' on his lapel - VR being  'Volunteer Reserve'. An officer in the RAF, but not a pilot, judging by the lack of wings.  Drawn on a grey textured paper in the artist's distinctive style using graphite and white chalk and in good condition it comes in a vintage frame behind glass with picture hooks and cord ready to hang - the Artist wrote and illustrated a book entitled Men of the RAF - dated 1942,in which he published 40 sepia drawings of the officers - he is best known as a war artist in both the First and Second World Wars - he was an official war artist in both wars and 200 of his portraits are held in the National Portrait Gallery. 

 

Bonhams Auction house have advised a valuation of between £600 and £800 for this drawing if it went to auction - without knowing the subject of the drawing - of course if identified the drawing would be worth more - so this is a bargain for a collectable portrait of an RAF Officer during World War II by this top artist - don't miss it
