Richard Cooper VE Day 'Peace!' Limited Edition

Richard Cooper



Goviers are delighted to be able to secure a limited number of this unique foundry bronze sculpture from Richard Cooper to commemorate V E Day's 75th anniversary in 2020.  

Limited to a Worldwide edition of only 75, this is sure to be one of our most popular pieces.

The bronze sculpture 'Peace!' by Michael Simpson has perfectly captured the celebratory mood of VE Day 75 years ago in 1945, which signalled for many the end of the Second World War, and ultimately peace in Europe.

The animated young girl has a bow in her hair to match the one on the back of her pretty 1940's style dress, and if you look closely you can see she has her little teddy bear with her, nestled in the pocket in the front of her dress. During WWII children were evacuated by train into the countryside to keep them safe from air raids in the cities, many carried a little teddy bear with them as a reminder of home and have become synonymous with WW2 evacuees.  This little girl obviously wants to keep her teddy bear close.

As she waves the Union Jack flag of Great Britain in celebration, her contented smile says it all 'peace!'.

Each Richard Cooper and Company solid bronze sculpture is decorated and finished using the traditional method of pagination, adding to the look and feel of 1945 which the PEACE bronze to celebrate VE Day 75, has captured so beautifully. The addition of colour to the waving Union Jack flag adds an extra dimension to this limited edition bronze sculpture. 

Richard Cooper & Company work with some of the best sculptors in their fields, who can capture the subject matter and translate it ultimatley into solid bronze. PEACE! was sculputed by Staffordshire based Mick Simpson, who has an unique ability to design extremely accurately and yet with a loose contemporary feel making his style easily recognisable and much appreciated by collectors around the world.
