The collection of one of Britain's most iconic female sculptors has sold for £270,000 after spending 25 years lying undiscovered in a barn.
The paintings, ceramics and other artworks that inspired the late Dame Elisabeth Frink were packed away in the mid-1990s and seemingly forgotten about.
They were only revisited in the last couple of years following the sudden death of her son and heir, Lin Jammet, in 2017.
A total of 130 lots went under the hammer at Woolley and Wallis in Salisbury, Wilts, after they were displayed alongside Frink's own works at her house, garden and studio in Dorset.
The sale surpassed all expectations, almost tripling the £100,000 estimate after buyers' premium was added.
