There are not many statues of foreign dignitaries in Paris. This one was commissioned five years after a statue of Charles de Gaulle was unveiled in London, with £250,000 in donations. It is 3.2 metre tall and weighs 2,500 kg.

I almost didn’t spot this. But something stopped me in my tracks. The potato-shaped head, the cane, the stooped shoulders. One thought popped into my head: Winston Churchill!

As indeed it was. It’s nice to see a monument to him in Paris but at the same time, if they were going to do it, it should have been grander. The man did a lot for France.

What a great statue of a brilliant Brutish politician who played such a major role in twentieth century French history (yes- that’s a typographical error but it fit so perfectly to describe the gentleman that I decided to leave it uncorrected).

I came across it by chance while walking from Les Invalides and across Pont Alexander III past Petit Palais to Place de la Concorde via the southeastern section of Champs Elysées.

I have one photo to share.

The phrase that is the title of this review is the entire commencement address speech that he gave at a southern United States medical school in 1965 before his death.... but in describing history, I change the intonation to describe his predecessor’s approach to Germany before World War II- “Neville gave up.”

Located within the grounds of the Petite Palais, stands (actually walking) a statue of the commanding politician, enough said.

If you have ever seen any of his paintings (the Dallas Museum of Art in the Wendy Reaves collection has a number of his works), you will realize that there may have been a little "tongue in cheek" humor going on here! I could see the statue fitting in well in front of the military museum or at the Arch de Triumph, but not in front of the fine art museum!

As for the statue, it is an excellent piece of work that captures the strength and determination of the man. The work is really well done and is worth a stop to look at it as opposed to a "drive by." His efforts (and that of many British soldiers, sailors and airmen) were significant in restoring Paris to the the rightful owners. It was interesting to read that the piece was purchased by the donations of the French people--who clearly recognize his importance to their survival. It really is a moving moment to see it, and it's beautiful setting at the foot of the Russian Czar--Alexander-- Bridge (with is also an incredible piece of art).

This 3m high, two tonne, bronze statue of Sir Winston Churchill, based on a photo from the WW2 of Sir Winston Churchill and General Charles de Gaulle walking triumphantly down the Champs Elysees, was made in 1988. It was predominately paid for by the citizens of Paris. Sir Winston Churchill is shown standing on a large oblong base with the words he spoke after the 1940 evacuation of allied troops from the beaches of Dunkirk: “We Shall Never Surrender”.

Standing — appropriately — by Avenue Winston Churchill, this nearly 10-feet-tall bronze statue pays homage to the man, who served as UK prime minister during WW II. Sculpted by Jean Cardot in 1998, the work depicts Churchill as he appeared in a photo, walking down the Champs Elysees with French WW II leader General Charles de Gaulle. When I first ambled by the statue years ago, I immediately recognized the subject by his signature long overcoat, distinctive cap and cane.

Now, the statue has become like an old friend, welcoming me to the Right Bank of the Seine soon after I cross the stunning Pont Alexandre III. The work stands at the southwest corner of Avenue Winston Churchill by the Petit Palace on a large oblong base, facing the sidewalk. An inscription captures Churchill’s famous words proclaimed on June 4, 1940: “We shall never surrender.”

Winston Churchill is one of the few people from outside France to be honored with a statue in Paris. Though this one has been nicely crafted, it would not likely warrant a special trip by most tourists. But those visiting the Petit Palace or the Grand Palais across the street may want to take a quick look while in the vicinity.

As we walked towards the Seine River we saw a bronze statue of Sir Winston Churchill at the corner within the grounds of the Petit Palais. This is similar to another statue near Westminster Palace in London.

Possibly more attractive now thanks to the generous bio pic a coiple of years ago. A nice statue in the gardens of the petit palais.
