Elisabeth Frink died in April 1993. She was 62, the foremost British sculptor of her generation, and renowned for her haunting and majestic representations of birds, animals and men. Her work is in numerous galleries and public places aound Britain and the world. Her last sculpture, a huge Christ like figure, was installed at Liverpool Cathedral in her presence shortly before her death. For some months before she died Frink had been working on a book about her life, work and attitudes to art with the eminent art critic Edward Lucie-Smith. At her death, the book was 80 per cent complete, and Lucie-Smith had discussed the remainder with her at length. This book contains 110 photographs of Frink sculptures, paintings and drawings. It is written so as to reflect the artist's own voice. As well as her accounts of her life and work, it contains her original views on the significance of art in general, and of sculpture in particular.
