Churchill: Images Of Greatness

In the pages of this book the reader will find a brief but unique history of Winston Churchill as seen through the eyes of artists, modelers and sculptors. From the wealth of mediums through which the spirit of Churchill has been portrayed it becomes evident that no other leader of modern times can equal the truly worldwide acclaim of his greatness. Churchill has been portrayed in many guises throughout the major part of this century, from the Boer War cigarette cards of 1900 to the present day. Throughout his life he played the part of the young soldier, the war correspondent, the painter, the historian, the Lord Admiral, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the War leader, the Prime Minister and the revered statesman. And in all these parts he has been represented in one art form or another. Every artist attempts to capture some aspect of the great man, and through this book the reader will develop a deeper understanding of that greatness.
