Croatian sculptor Oscar Nemon began his career in Vienna and Brussels in the 1920s and 1930s, during which time he sculpted such notable figures as Sigmund Freud and Charles Lindbergh. He moved to England in 1938, escaping the Nazi threat of the Second World War, and settled here. Over the course of the next 40 years Nemon’s sitters included Winston Churchill, Dwight D Eisenhower and Elizabeth II. Join Aurelia Young, daughter of Nemon, as she discusses the life and work of her father, and explores how he became the favoured sculptor of Parliamentarians.
