Daily Mail Article

Self-taught artist's collection of portraits signed by their subjects including Churchill, Einstein and Truman after he sent them off for signatures
  • * Self-taught Alex Statters spent nearly 40 years painting important figures
  • * He would then post the portraits to their subject to get them signed
  • * The artist would often have to wait as long as a year for the signature

An astonishing collection of portraits by an amateur artist who sent the paintings to the famous subjects for them to sign has been unearthed.

Self-taught Alex Statters spent nearly 40 years at his hobby, painting the great and important figures from photographs then trying to get them signed.

Statters was born in the early 1890s and after a working life in Newcastle settled in Southport, Merseyside. It is thought he died in the early 1960s.
