“Winston Churchill The Artist” has been sculpted to exacting detail, from the lines on Churchill’s face to the hairs of the paintbrush in his right hand, from the signet ring appearing on Churchill’s finger of the right hand to special details of the siren suit Churchill wore while painting. Lady Mary Soames (Churchill’s youngest daughter and sole surviving child) and Ms. Celia Sandys (Churchill’s granddaughter) provided advise, recommendations, and criticism throughout all phases of the project to insure perfection in every possible way. Lady Soames commented upon completion, “This is my father.” The image sculpted on the easel’s canvas is a likeness of the portrait Churchill painted of his wife, Clementine (a reproduced photocopy of the original portrait appears in the background in the picture above). The overall result is that “Winston Churchill The Artist” is the finest contribution to Churchilliana ever produced and, indeed, can be expected to represent the showcase piece in any Churchilliana collection.
