    Christ On The Cross, which he painted in 1964 at the age of just six, will go under the hammer at auction, with half the proceeds going to Marie Curie Cancer Care. The artist remembers starting the painting with an art set his grandmother bought him. His uncle bought the painting but it came back to Howson recently after he died.
