Hardback book with 310 illustrations, 111 in colour. This in-depth book details Elisabeth Frink’s career from 1984 to her death in 1993, including a catalogue raisonné of her sculpture since 1984; a list of sculpture in public places; a catalogue raisonné of drawings from the 1950s and a chronology of exhibitions and awards since 1984.
Born in Thurlow, Suffolk, Dame Elisabeth Frink (1930-1993) trained at Guildford School of Art (1947-49), and at Chelsea School of Art (1949-1952) under Bernard Meadows and Willi Soukop. These studies, combined with visits to Paris that acquainted her with Giacometti and the works of Rodin, culminated in Frink’s first major exhibition at the Beaux Art Gallery in 1952.
