Abstract

This publication set out to provide an original perspective on Frink’s work, identifying its darker elements and preoccupation with aspects of human behaviour. Winner examined how Frink explored the relationship of humans to animals and the use of the animal as metaphor. The essay provided a comprehensive analysis of the response to the aftermath of the Second World War and Cold War realpolitik by visual artists such as Frink, writers, and filmmakers. Winner’s essay drew extensive parallels with literary as well as film sources and the relationship between literature, film, and the visual artists in the post-war period. As the book’s editor, Winner wrote two substantial new essays on Frink and directed subject matter for the other two. In the book’s principle essay, ‘Black Wings’, Winner set out to provide an original perspective on Frink’s work, identifying its darker elements and preoccupation with aspects of human behaviour.
