Dame Elisabeth Jean Frink, CH, DBE, RA

1930-1993

Dame Elisabeth Frink was a leading figure in British sculpture. She studied at the Chelsea School of Art from 1949 to 1953 and was part of the post-war group of British sculptors who became known as the Geometry of Fear School. She was awarded honorary doctorates from several universities, and was given the title CBE and Dame.

Although Frink made many drawings and prints, she is best known for her bronze outdoor sculptures. Untouched by passing fashions, Frink created mostly figurative sculptures, the human male and animals being among her favorite subjects. Her experience of different landscapes made her increasingly enthusiastic about her sculptures being shown in the open air.

Hongkong Land commissioned the Water Buffaloes in 1986.
