Join a talk in the barn gallery with Dr Arie Hartog assessing Elisabeth Frink’s wider contribution to figurative sculpture in the 20th century.
During the Frink exhibition ‘Man is an Animal’, which was first exhibited at the Gerhard Marcks Haus Museum in Bremen, Germany, we are joined by the museum director Dr Arie Hartog.
‘Man is an Animal’ is the most extensive collection of large-scale sculptures by Dame Elisabeth Frink to be shown in this country since the artist’s death in April 1993.
Dr. Arie Hartog is Director of Gerhard Marcks Haus, a museum for modern and contemporary sculpture inspired by the work of the German sculptor and graphic artist Gerhard Marcks (b. 1889 – d. 1981). Dr Hartog is also chairman of the Association of Sculpture Museums and Sculpture Collections Working Group in Germany. His research focuses on the history of European sculpture.
