D-Day sculpturer David Williams-Ellis' to exhibit and sell commemorative bronzes of the 75th anniversary D-Day landings sculpture.
British sculptor David Williams-Ellis who designed the 18-foot high bronze memorial to commemorate the Normandy is to exhibit a series of Maquette's from the series at London’s Portland Gallery from June 12 to 21 and Masterpiece Art Fair from 27 June-3 July. “The bronze sculptures that you will see in this exhibition were the preparation for the completed work and the conclusion of the concept for the final sculpture," writes Williams-Ellis.
The three bronze figures that were unveiled to the world on the 6th June 2019 marking on the 75th anniversary of the largest amphibious invasion in the history of warfare occupy the forecourt of the new British Normandy Memorial constructed on a gently sloping hillside above Gold Beach. This is the first British memorial dedicated to the 22,442 men and women who lost their lives in Normandy between the D-Day landings of June 6, 1944 and August 31, 1944
Maquette from the sculpture will be offered for sale as individual figures and are priced at £6,750 each (editions of nine) or as a group at £25,000.
