The Lake in the Park, c1930
Painter, printmaker, interior designer and sculptor. Born in London, Flight trained as an engineer, then became a librarian. He Began to study at Heatherley’s School of Fine Art, resuming his studies in 1918 after Army service, with a special interest in lino-cutting, of which he was to become a master. In the 1920s began to exhibit on the continent, in 1925 having lino-cuts bought by the Contemporary Art Society and the British Museum. Two years later formed interior decorating business with the artist Edith Lawrence, experimenting with lino-cutting, textiles, picture panels and wall hangings.
In 1931 he had one-man show at Redfern Gallery, in 1935 a joint exhibition with Edith Lawrence at the French Gallery. They were responsible for the First Exhibition of British Lino-Cuts at the Redfern in 1929, an annual event until 1937. During World War II many of Flight’s paintings and colour blocks were destroyed by enemy action. For a time Flight was editor of Arts and Crafts Quarterly, and he also published a number of books, including Lino-Cuts.
From 1922 until his death,Claude Flight's companion and collaborator was a fellow linocut artist, and textile designer, Edith Lawrence (1890-1973). They lived together from 1925 and Flight and Lawrence shared several exhibitions of watercolours and textiles, including the Redfern Gallery in 1928 and the French Gallery in March 1935.
There is no way of knowing which hand painted which stroke, and the watercolours offered here must be credited as joint productions of Flight and Lawrence.

Astonishing place. Driving home I realised it was probably the best experience I've ever had in a shop/gallery. I'll be filling my house with their artworks for years to come. A unique place.
Just received my Kang-hyo Lee teacup. In perfect condition. I’m so happy with it and I think the international service offered by Goldmark is superb. The staff are so kind and extremely efficient and professional.
Goldmark have the most astonishing range, from the very affordable to the upper echelons of the market. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and really helpful. For anyone wanting to start a serious art collection within whatever budget this could be the best place to start.
There is no other gallery like Goldmark. I'm always amazed at both the stock they hold and their ability to regularly source really quite special pieces of art. That, with their friendly, knowledgeable & utterly unpretentious style makes them a delight to visit & to buy from.
Their delivery service is 100% reliable and the breadth of work displayed on their website pretty amazing. Above all, unlike other such dealers, I have never been under any pressure to buy. I recommend you give them a try.
We first visited Goldmark approximately 6 years ago and immediately liked the informality compared to previous gallery experiences. It’s a great place to start or build on your collection. Everyone at Goldmark is very friendly, knowledgeable and will give you as much or as little time as you wish.
Great pots, exquisitely displayed, expertly packed and shipped all over the world! The storytelling about potters and their methods has been extremely helpful, Goldmark is fabulous!
Always friendly and helpful staff with an amazing ever changing gallery of wonderful art and studio pottery! Would highly recommend a visit!
We have bought prints and pots from Goldmark over many years and our house is the richer for the collections we have built up. The framing and delivery service are faultless.
Their exhibitions are always prepared with great care, with videos and catalogs accompanying the shows. I have not been able to visit the gallery in person but all the Goldmark team is splendid and highly professional, which makes the virtual shopping a great experience.
