Frink’s work revolved around archetypes of masculine strength, struggle and aggression. Combined with her preoccupation with war, completing a set of illustrations for Homer’s epic Greek poems ‘The Iliad’ and ‘The Odyssey’ was a natural fit. The poems tell the story of the Trojan War and the journey of Odysseus after the fall of the city of Troy. God-like characters are elevated to mythological status, and provided a rich source of imagery and stimulation for Frink.

Frink produced these lithographs with the master printers at The Curwen Press in 1974-75. Like many of her Modern British contemporaries, Frink showed great versatility in the approach she took to her art, undertaking commissions for illustrations and design projects. The result was a diverse output, which never compromised on quality and brought her work to the attention of a wider audience.
