As a young woman, Clementine Hozier was known for her intelligence, beauty and charm. She married Winston Churchill in 1908 with whom she had five children. During the First World War she organized canteens for munitions workers and, during the second, visited air-raid shelters and reported to her husband, then Prime Minister, on the conditions Londoners were enduring. An enthusiastic traveller who learnt to ski in her fifties, she is seen in this charming study by Lavery with her daughter Sarah.
