"Madame Rambert's rehearsal room in which I was courteously allowed to paint used to provide background for my ballet pictures.
I have forgotten the particular subject under discussion but it certainly pertained to the Ballet (with a capital B). In that dedicated chamber
no other theme would be permitted." Dame Marie Rambert, justifiably described as, the mother of British ballet" was a contemporary and near neighbour of Russell Flint,
being born in 1888, and living in Campden Hill Gardens. Her Ballet School and Theatre - the Mercury - was a converted church hall
(and neighbouring houses) in Notting Hill Gate. Her rehearsal room featured here was for "Mirror of the Ballet".


A master of watercolour painting, Sir William Russell Flint's work enjoys the recognition amongst the finest and most experienced art of our time.
