Frink in Dorset


Elisabeth Frink: A View from Within is a major exhibition at Dorset Museum in Dorchester, from 2nd December to 21st April. It coincides with the 30th anniversary of the artist’s death, and will be the first to focus on the work produced by Frink (1930-1993) at her Woolland studio between 1976 and 1993. It will include works that the museum acquired from the Elisabeth Frink Estate in 2020, and feature sculptures, prints, drawings, and personal possessions. Many of these items, including working plasters that formed the basis of Frink’s bronze sculptures, will be on public show for the first time.
Arranged thematically, the exhibition will comprise around 80 works, each offering a unique perspective on Frink’s life and art.
