Elisabeth Frink was one of Britain's best known sculptors and a highly accomplished artist and printmaker. She was recognised at an early age when she sold a piece named Bird to the Tate Gallery in the early 1950s whilst still a student. Elisabeth Frink became one of Britain's most important sculptors during the course of a long and productive career. Elisabeth Frink's work covers near abstract styles to highly individual figurative works, including many important public commissions up to the time of her death in 1993.
Elisabeth Frink was born in 1930 in Suffolk and studied at the Guilford School of Art and the Chelsea School of Art. She was later taught at St Martins School of Art and was awarded a CBE in 1968. Her remarkable works have a very wide appeal and are to be found in private and public collections worldwide.
Elisabeth Frink held her first solo show at Bohun Gallery in 1978. She regularly launched her small scale sculpture at the Oxfordshire gallery and they continue to exhibit both her sculpture and silkscreen prints.
