In the summer of 1983, Yorkshire Sculpture Park mounted a major exhibition of Dame Elisabeth Frink’s sculpture. Since the 1950s Frink had been actively engaged in commissions and making sculpture for out doors and this exhibition was a representative selection of work made between 1956 and 1983. Her sculptures were of men, horses, dogs and sometimes, religious subjects.

More Information

The exhibition was held in the Formal Garden at YSP. The Large Heads were sited along the terrace; the running figures were placed on the lawn and the animals and Horse and Rider were discreetly sited in the surrounding shrubbery. Dame Elisabeth Frink was one of Britain’s leading sculptors and was arguably the most important female artist working in the country.

There were more the 22 pieces of sculpture in the exhibition and later in the summer there was an exhibition of drawings and smaller works at the Cooper Art Gallery in Barnsley.
