Jubilee Hall, 2 Parsonage Lane, Enfield, EN2 0AJ

Talk by Lady Aurelia Young.

Oscar Nemon (1906 – 1985) is one of the twentieth century’s greatest sculptors, responsible for iconic portraits of elder statesmen and major figures displayed all over the world. He was a flamboyant personality who charmed those who came into contact with him, including towering figures such as Winston Churchill, Sigmund Freud and Queen Elizabeth II along with countless politicians and celebrities. His daughter Aurelia will talk to us about her father’s life from humble origins as a Jew in (what is now) Croatia to his refuge from the Nazis in southern England, the career of this often infuriating yet charismatic man and his artistic and personal encounters with presidents, prime ministers, royalty and others. The Queen nicknamed him the ‘missing Oscar’ and he became the subject of the only attempt at sculpture by his friend Churchill, who in turn posed for many likenesses by Nemon including a monumental bronze in the House of Commons.

A regular programme of talks is arranged by the Enfield Society. These are free to members and non-members are welcome to attend for a modest charge (typically £1 per meeting). Refreshments will be available and our sales counter will be open. Jubilee Hall, 2 Parsonage Lane, is near the junction with Chase Side and there is an access ramp for wheelchairs.
