A striking oil portrait featuring Herbert Kitchener, 1st Earl Kitchener. In 1914, at the start of the First World War, Kitchener became the British Secretary of State for War. He organised the largest volunteer army that Britain had seen. On 5 June 1916, Kitchener was making his way to Russia on HMS Hampshire to attend negotiations with Tsar Nicholas II when in bad weather the ship struck a German mine 1.5 miles west of Scotland and sank. Kitchener was among 737 who died.
This is believed to be a commemorative portrait circa 1916, the year of the Earl's death at sea. Unsigned.
