A new exhibition featuring three highly influential female artists.

 

Frink-Blow-Lawson brings together the work of Dame Elisabeth Frink, Sandra Blow and Sonia Lawson, and explores their profound impact, still recognisable today. The work featured in this unique exhibition reflects the underlying tension between figuration and abstraction, which ran throughout the twentieth century.

From Frink's haunting sculptures, including larger-than-life figurative works, to Blow's pioneering abstractions and Lawson's narrative-based, richly textured surfaces, this visionary collection of sculpture, collage and painting celebrates the international influence of these artists - one that continues to reverberate today.

This exhibition is part of Women with Vision. A ticket to Women with Vision grants you access to all of the galleries and associated exhibitions.
