Artist of the moment………..Elisabeth Frink


Dame Elisabeth Frink was a wonderful British artist renown for her sculptures. Elisabeth Frink was born in Thurlow, Suffock, England  in the year 1930. Frink enjoyed carving horses in addition to the human figure.

Frink attended what is now called the University for the Creative Arts in Canterbury, England. The artist also attended the Chelsea School of Art.

The artist often worked with the male nude as her muse. Frink tried to emphasize the masculine qualities of strength and aggression.

Elisabeth Frink passed away from cancer complications in 1993 at the age of 62 years old.

Below a work titled ” Walking Madonna”:

Frink was also a prolific printmaker.

England issued a stamp in 1996 celebrating the achievements of Elisabeth Frink.

Below a short clip on the artist and some words about her from her son:

Price range information: Lithographs, etchings, and drawings range from $5,000 to $30,000. Bronzes range from $40,000 to $700,000. 

What I enjoy most about Frink’s work is her attention and development of her drawing and printmaking skills in addition to her sculpture works. She continued to experiment and grow in multiple mediums as she grew older.
