    Looks like possibly a John Singer Sargent or a Thomas Lawrence, but I couldn't find its match online.

      Did you ever find out about the painting? I am curious too. I have a painting that looks just like this in my home that my great grandmother painted. I never knew she had copied a great work and am very curious to find out more about this piece of art. Thank you.

        HI: I am curious as well. I do not think a Sargeant, Was it Winston's

          Hi
          I would like to find out about this painting, because I once worked for a lord who owned a painting like this but it had 3 girls in it not two?

            Looks like Winston's daughters Sarah and Mary. It would be in their private family collection I would think...not on display.

              I don't really see any photos of his daughters that look similar to the girls this painting, but it seems plausible. I just read he had three daughters, so that might explain why there is a version with three girls.

                I contacted Professor David Freeman at WinstonChurchill.org regarding this portrait. He in turn contacted the House and Collections Manager at Chartwell and was informed that no such portrait exists at the Churchill home and had no idea who the girls depicted could be. He suggested that I contact the Focus Features film company.

                Over a week ago I contacted the FocusFeatures/DarkestHour site and also the set designer Katie Spencer via IMDB. So far no reply from either. Will update if and when I do.

                    I was doing a search for another painting and came upon a painting that reminded me of this thread. John Everett Millais - 'Sisters' a portrait of his daughters...Effie Mary and Alice I believe. There is a younger one Sophie. This is in a private collection....perhaps this is the one you are referring to. Never did hear back from anyone. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/F...ters,_1868.jpg

                      i was also wondering and cant find anything. but when i looked up paintings in this genre, i realized this painting reminds me of renoir’s paintings of two girls about this age, same coloring, and i think i dont know this painting from anywhere but was just thinking of renoir.

                        I think you will need to contact the set decorator for the film.

                          Could be a John Levery ?
