    Married Love is based on Oscar Nemon's famous sculpture of Churchill at Westerham Green, near Chartwell, which features the statesman in a similar seated pose. In the present work, Churchill is joined by his wife Clementine, who praised Nemon's earlier sculpture of her husband: 'That is how I see him and that is how I love him'. After her husband's death, Clementine sat for Nemon at her flat in Princes Gate, which resulted in the present sculpture. Larger versions of the present work, cast in bronze, are at Chartwell, Kent and in Kansas City, Missouri.
