The Place to Find All Things Churchill

The Churchill Image New Exhibit in Fulton

Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri began to acquire sculptural portraits of Winston Churchill even before a permanent museum and memorial was established in in 1969. Over the past fifty years, the National Churchill Museum has assembled one of the most important and extensive collections of bronze sculptures depicting the likeness of arguably the most recognizable leader of the 20th century.

Drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection and select loans, The Churchill Image presents a stunning range of sculpture depicting the courage, character and humanity of the great statesman.

The exhibition includes work by Oscar Nemon (Croatian, 1906–1985), Sir Jacob Epstein (American-British, 1929–1959), David McFall, RA (Scottish, 1919–1988), Franta Belsky (Czech, 1921–2000), Ivor Roberts-Jones, RA (British, 1919–1996) and Lawrence Holofcerner (American, 1926–2017).

The exhibition also features—on public view for the first time—the original clay version of the monumental bas relief sculpture, Iron Curtain, by St. Louis artist and Churchill Fellow Don Wiegand.
