Adrian Sassoon will present a solo display by artist Elizabeth Fritsch CBE at the 2023 edition of Frieze Masters, London.
Fritsch is a pioneering artist and a star graduate from the Royal College of Art in London during the 1970s. She emerged as a progressive ceramicist realising critical acclaim for her ‘New Ceramics’ – a movement away from the more utilitarian making that had preceded her. Fritsch initiated a significant shift in British ceramic art and helped redefine a new artistic narrative in the field through innovative sculptural form, colour juxtaposition, and experimentation. She is renowned for her compressed vessels with angular silhouettes, dramatic decorative three-dimensional colourful patterns. They are often displayed as groups, in dialogue – back to front, side by side – and best appreciated in the round.
Adrian Sassoon will bring together an unprecedented collection of Fritsch’s works of art, all created before 2010. The presentation will mark a significant moment, returning Fritsch to the public’s attention, following her milestone retrospective at the National Museum and Gallery, Cardiff.
