Edwina Sandys Granddaughter
Of Winston Churchill
Unveils Churchill Bust At The
Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library


New York, NY —On June 15, 2007 at 5:00 pm, the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library celebrated the restored art of Edwina Sandys, grand-daughter of Winston Churchill who created the center-piece sculpture “Break Free” for “ Freedom Court ,” at the FDR Library in Hyde Park. Sandys ’ installation will be joined alongside the bust of her grandfather by legendary sculptor Oscar Nemon after its unveiling . The Churchill bust will be displayed across the Franklin Roosevelt bust at the entrance of the library’s “ Freedom Court .”

Sandys ’ sculpture is carved from the Berlin Wall and is crafted from the shapes of a man and a woman. The two figures stand atop a square base with each side featuring one of FDR’s Four Freedoms. The real and symbolic tearing down of the Berlin Wall is immortalized in Sandys ’ monumental sculpture. . A companion sculpture, “Break Through,” was created from the section of the Wall from which these figures were cut. It is installed at Westminster College in Fulton , Missouri , where Winston Churchill gave his famous “Iron Curtain speech” in 1946.

Speakers at the dedication included Ms. Sandys; Lady Aurelia Young, the daughter of Oscar Nemon; Sir Alan Stanley Collins, British Consul-General of New York ; and other dignitaries.

The artistic appeal of Edwina Sandys lies in her diverse subject matter ranging from the light-hearted to the profound. Her art deals with issues of our times: War &Peace, Women, Nature, and Family. Her distinctive style creates powerful effect with her use of negative and positive forces.Over the last twenty years, the United Nations has installed five monumental sculptures by Edwina Sandys at their centers around the world and also holds permanent collections at the Ronald Reagan Library and Brooklyn Museum of Art.

“ Freedom Court ” provides a deeper understanding of the powerful and historic relationship between President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill. The combined elements of “ Freedom Court ” provide a poignant history lesson—FDR’s Four Freedoms speech; the collaboration of Roosevelt and Churchill that led to victory in World War II; the emergence of the Cold War; and the ultimate collapse of Communism with the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The “ Freedom Court ” dedication took place in conjunction with “Roosevelt & Churchill: The Legacy of Two Statesman,” a conference jointly organized by the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute and the Churchill Centre which ran from June 15 through June 17.
