An important terracotta maquette, for the famous seated Churchill sculpture by Oscar Nemon. Originally conceived to celebrate the eightieth birthday of Sir Winston, in 1955, with the full size bronze placed on the green, here in Westerham, the Guildhall, and at sir Winston's home, at Chartwell in 1965. The placing of a statute here in Sir Winston's beloved home town of Westerham, was commissioned by the people of the town to commemorate Churchill's death in Jan 1965. A committee was formed of local residents for the organising and sighting of the statute at the heart of Westerham's green. The granite base for the Westerham statue was donated by Marshall Tito and the people of Yugoslavia. This iconic sculpture shows a recumbent Churchill and is considered to be one of Nemon's most accomplished works.
Excellent with good patination
A Westerham resident.
