Finding Nemon: The Extraordinary Life of the Outsider Who Sculpted the Famous

Aurelia Young and Patrick Bade

Jewish Book Week

Aurelia Young speaker
Patrick Bade chair

Emigré sculptor Oscar Nemon, whose subjects included Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth, Winston Churchill and Sigmund Freud, was one of the 20th century’s greatest and most flamboyant sculptors. Born into a Jewish Croatian family, he sought refuge from the Nazis in England.

His daughter Aurelia Young, in conversation with cultural historian Patrick Bade, tells his rip-roaring story.


Lady Aurelia Young is Nemon’s elder daughter.  She lived with her parents, her brother and sister at the family home on Boars Hill near Oxford, and spent considerable time at her father’s studio after she grew up. Since his death she has undertaken significant research into all aspects of Nemon’s life and gives talks in the UK and elsewhere on his artistic career.  She married George Young in 1964, an MP for forty-one years, who is now Lord Young of Cookham.

Patrick Bade is an art historian. His works include Femme Fatale: Images of Evil and Fascinating Women, and studies of artists such as Degas, Klimt and Renoir.

In association with Insiders/Outsiders and STATE-F22.
