Catalogue Note

‘[The] horse sculptures are nothing to do with the horses you see here in England – the hunter, the show horse, the race horse. They’re much more to do with the ancient spirt of the horse and with its evolution in relation to man…The fact that I was brought up with horses and taught to ride from an early age had no bearing on the horses I did in France. Those came because I discovered the Camargue… I used to go down to the Camargue and ride with the local cowboys’ (Elisabeth Frink, quoted in Edward Lucie-Smith and Elisabeth Frink, Frink A Portrait, Bloomsbury, London, 1994, p.50)
