The Daily Telegraph told a half-truth last week when it accused the Obama White House of returning to Britain a Jacob Epstein sculpture displayed in the Oval Office under George W. Bush.
In a story carefully crafted to conceal it’s error, the Telegraph admitted that there are, in fact, two matching Churchill busts by Epstein, one of which remains in the White House.
The one displayed from 2001 – 2009 by Mr Bush, was indeed returned, along with all other art lent to him, as his presidency came to an end.
The other, given as a gift to President Lyndon B Johnson in 1965 by a group of Atlanticist diplomats and military officers, remains in the White House residence.
