  • Artist - William Russell Flint - Biography
    William Russell Flint (1880 - 19679) is one of the most celebrated British watercolourists of the 20th century, Russell Flint is known for his remarkable technical skill and precision. Born in Edinburgh in 1880, Flint was first introduced to painting by his father before developing his skills at Banks and Co. Printers where he enrolled in a six year apprenticeship as a lithographic draughtsman. Although he is known for his watercolours he also painted in oil and tempera, and produced etchings. Russell Flint became president of the Royal Academy, and also president of the Royal Watercolour Society for twenty years from 1936. He was further recognised in 1947, with a knighthood for his services to art, and later a solo exhibition at the Royal Academy. Painting in several countries including France, Italy, Switzerland and Scotland, Russell Flint was captivated by the distinctive and unique character of the distant lands. However, his foremost fascination was the female form. This manifested in a wide range of depictions; spanning from flamenco dancers to Russell Flint's picturesque gypsies and languorous nudes..
