ELISABETH FRINK "HORSE AND RIDER II" LITHOGRAPH, 1970
Elisabeth Frink (1930-1993) was one of Britain's leading postwar sculptors. In addition to her work in sculpture, Frink was an accomplished and prolific printmaker, experimenting with various mediums and techniques over the course of her career.
Growing up during the Second World War, Frink was deeply effect by the horror and tragedy that unfolded in the aftermath of the conflict. The artist's proximity to war would influence her practice, as she would depict her most preferred subject matter (men, birds, and horses) with strength and resilience.
Frink was particularly interested in the relationship between man and horse and studied their images and dynamic throughout history. She established equestrian imagery as one of her most notable and iconic motifs, reimagining the pair in various mediums throughout her oeuvre. These images are both timeless and universal.
"Horse and Rider I" serves as an excellent testament to Frink's body of work. This elegant print shows a man mounted on a horse, both poised and dynamic. The rider is stylized and possibly unclothed, emphasizing the musculature of both subjects, and the instinctive bond between the two.
Today, Frink's work is held in numerous museum collections including The Tate Modern (London) and The National Portrait Gallery (London). The artist's contribution to public art is celebrated internationally with works on display in Windsor Sculpture Park (Ontario), Old Bond St. (London), and the Chatsworth House (Derbyshire).
