Elisabeth Frink: Her Life and Her Influences

Lecture one of a two part series exploring Elisabeth Frink, her personal experiences and her greatest influence, Auguste Rodin.
The talk will discuss the incredible body of work made by Dame Elisabeth Frink, one of the most significant sculptors of the twentieth century. Learn more about Frink’s life, influences and working practice.
The talk will be delivered by Jo Baring, Director of the Ingram Collection which is a not-for-profit organisation founded by philanthropist and serial entrepreneur Chris Ingram. The Ingram Collection, one of the UK’s most significant collections of Modern British Art, contains over 700 works of art, of which 500 were lent publicly last year.
Jo leads the strategy on public engagement with the art collection, working extensively with regional museums and galleries, and runs the charity’s ‘Young Contemporary Talent’ programme which supports emerging artists through mentoring, events and exhibitions. She was previously a Director of Christie’s UK and studied at Brasenose College, Oxford, and the Courtauld Institute of Art.
