Issue Name: National Portrait Gallery - Sir Winston Churchill
Producer: Buckingham Covers
This official National Portrait Gallery Cover features a great photographic portrait of Sir Winston Churchill making the famous "V for Victory sign". One stamp features Sir Graham Sutherland's infamous portrait of Sir Winston, which he reputedly hated. You can make up your own mind! A limited number were genuinely signed by Winston Churchill MP (grandson of the famous man).
The National Portrait Gallery
The National Portrait Gallery was formally established on 2nd December 1856, with the criteria that the Gallery was to be about the people who have made a significant contribution to British history and culture, rather than the quality or character of a particular image. This criterion is still used by the Gallery today, when deciding which works enter the National Portrait Gallery's Collection.
The Collection had several homes before finally settling at its present site on the corner of Charing Cross Road, where both the building and the Collection has ben enhanced over the years.
The National Portrait Gallery, recognising the need for showing the Collection outside London, has developed a number of ways of sharing the works with regional audiences and has been at the forefront of such developments within the museum community.
