Sir Winston Churchill K.G by John Armstrong

John Armstrong (British, 1893-1973)

Bust of Sir Winston Spencer Churchill K.G (1874-1965)

Patinated bronze on a painted, stepped wooden plinth.

A highly evocative cast bronze bust of Sir Winston Churchill, created by the artist John Armstrong.

Armstrong, a disciple of Moore, was a member of Unit One, a movement designed to embrace the key movements of Modern Art, namely Surrealism and Abstraction. Formed by Paul Nash in 1933, Unit One was ‘to stand for the expression of a truly contemporary spirit, for that thing which is recognised as peculiarly of today in painting, sculpture and architecture’.
