In Sleeping Fox, we see Dame Elisabeth Frink’s unromantic awareness of nature and the vulnerability of the animal world. After an upbringing in Suffolk and Devon, Frink established homes and studios in London and then in rural France before moving back to England and finally settling in the Dorset countryside with her third husband, Alex Csáky, in 1977.
