Sir Winston Churchill

Artist Proof
Bronze with a green patina

One of the greatest leaders of the modern world, Winston Churchill is among the most recognizable figures in Western history. This larger-than-life green patina bronze bust by the renowned British sculptor Ivor Roberts-Jones masterfully captures his famous visage, as well as his determined air and strong resilience.

Most notably, this glorious bust is the coveted artist proof of this sculpture. During the commissioning of significant statues, including this one, it was customary for the artist to produce a proof which is typically the finest of all the casts.

This artist proof is an exact match to Ivor Roberts-Jones’ meticulously crafted full-standing sculpture of Churchill positioned in Parliament Square in London. Erected in 1971, Roberts-Jones’ head-to-toe sculpture of Churchill is the second most widely observed sculpture in the United Kingdom, surpassed only by General Nelson's column in Trafalgar Square.

This larger-than-life bronze bust is identical to the top of his twin in Parliament Square. Cast in the exact monumental scale, it serves as a rousing representation of the esteemed leader. This remarkably rare artist proof is not only a symbol of Ivor Roberts-Jones’ greatest artistic achievement but also the lasting legacy of this great British icon.
