Elisabeth Frink: The Presence of Sculpture

  • 25 November 2015 — 28 February 2016 *on now

Elisabeth Frink was one of Britain’s leading 20th-century sculptors. She created, without the aid of assistants, an impressive body of over 400 sculptures while working in a succession of studios – in London, France and finally Dorset.

Throughout her lifetime Frink received many commissions for public buildings, urban environments and sacred spaces. This exhibition presents the stories of these sculptures from studio to place, and examines the changing demands and attitudes of commissioners as urban Britain moved from post Second-World War reconstruction to new agendas for built environments. Rarely seen studio and archive material including original plasters, photographs, film, letters and
papers saved from her final studio at Woolland in Dorset, are shown along with sculptures cast in bronze, drawings and original prints.

Including loans from private collections and the Frink Estate, the exhibition provides a fascinating insight into Frink’s inspirations and working methods, and the significance of the ongoing presence of her commissioned work. Some have fared better than others – silent witnesses of changing places and communities in modern Britain.

David Jones: Vision and Memory

  • 12 March — 5 June 2016

David Jones (1895-1974) was a painter, engraver, poet and maker of inscriptions. A lyrical draughtsman, he responded with delight to the visual world, yet his vision
was informed by memory reaching back into the depths of time and history.

The celebrated art historian and broadcaster, Kenneth Clark, believed he was the
greatest British watercolourist of the 20th century.

This major exhibition has been organised to coincide with the publication of a new monograph and includes some 60 works from throughout Jones’s life in a timely
reassessment of one of the most imaginative artists of his era. Exhibits range from sketches made on the Western Front to watercolours of trees, flowers and thorns, as well as drawings of Arthurian subjects and painted inscriptions.
