This painting has an interesting story.
Restorers found some 200 tears on the canvas and fragments of plaster from the bomb blast, which hit the London home of its owners, the Ellesmere family.
Despite the damage, the painting had lost none of its intensity after spending decades tucked away in a Scottish country house.
The painting, which has yet to be fully restored, will be shown in London's National Gallery from 24 February.
