'Corrida Five', Lithograph, 1973


Signed and numbered from the edition of 72 in pencil. Printed at Curwen and published by Waddington Graphics.

Frink produced a series of eight bullfighting lithographs in 1973 inspired by the bullfights she had witnessed in the Camargue region, south of Arles in France. She had moved here in 1964 following her marriage to Edward Pool and lived and worked there until the mid 1970s. Her lithographs depict both male bull fighters and the female rejoneadoras who rode horseback during the bull fights and speared the bulls with lances.
