by Sir William Orpen
The National Portrait Gallery has an incredibly rich collection of images of Sir Winston Churchill. His latest biographer and one of our Trustees, Prof. Andrew Roberts, talks about some of the best of them, and what was happening in Churchill’s life at the time they were made.
Dr Andrew Roberts FRSL FRHistS has a PhD from Cambridge University, is a Visiting Professor at the War Studies Department of King’s College, London, and the Lehrman Institute Distinguished Lecturer at the New-York Historical Society. He is the author of 13 books, including Eminent Churchillians, Hitler and Churchill, A History of the English-speaking Peoples Since 1900, The Storm of War: A History of the Second World War, Masters and Commanders: How Roosevelt, Churchill, Alanbrooke and Marshall Won the War in the West, and now his single-volume biography, Churchill: Walking with Destiny. He is a Trustee of the International Churchill Society, the Margaret Thatcher Archive Trust and the National Portrait Gallery.
