Dame Elisabeth Frink, whose name is followed properly with references to CH, DBE, RA, her British honors, lived from November 14, 1930 to April 18, 1993. She was an English artist who devoted herself to monumental forms and topics. Men, horses, and the divine appear in her sculpture. Not so much cats. But we do notice this etching, dated to 1985.
Valerie Eliot, T, S, Eliot's rich widow, when the proceeds from Cats poured in, purchased art, and apparently used the guidelines he laid out of supporting his adopted country. She purchased a Frink for instance, but not a Frink cat sculpture, which are rare, maybe non-existent.
