Limited Edition of the Westerham Churchill Maquette
To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of Sir Winston Churchill’s death and celebrate the forthcoming Oscar Nemon Studio Museum, the Nemon Estate has created a limited edition of a maquette for the Westerham Churchill. This is the model used for the full-sized statue of Churchill that sits on the village green in Westerham, the community closest to Churchill’s home, Chartwell.
Oscar Nemon was both a friend of Churchill and the foremost sculptor of the Prime Minister’s likeness. His work can be found in the lobby of the House of Commons and in the United States Capitol. Following sittings with Churchill at Chartwell, Number Ten Downing Street, and Hyde Park Gate, Nemon would retreat to his Pleasant Land studio in Oxfordshire to realise the sculptures which honour Churchill’s heritage around the world.
Maquettes such as this one allowed Nemon to conceptualise the full size bronze. Many have been retained in his studio alongside drawings and portraits of Churchill and other distinguished sitters. The Studio Museum will be open for bookable, guided visits, and is twenty minutes from Blenheim.
The Westerham Churchill Maquette is cast by hand in resin bronze and finished with a patina to match the full-size original in the village of Westerham. The edition is limited to 500. Each maquette is signed and comes with a numbered certificate. The maquette weighs twenty pounds and measures 9 1/2 inches high, by 8 1/2 inches deep, by 10 inches wide.
The Westerham Churchill is available exclusively from the Nemon Estate and can be shipped globally. Proceeds from the sales go to support the conservation of Oscar Nemon’s works.
