This is the eleventh publication of Russell Flint's paintings
In the style of 'Phillida'
Russell Flint had by the time this painting was published, been painting for approxinately thirty years.

These very old publications are very rarely seen.
The edition when published in 1931 was only 310.
Therefore the quantity of prints still in existence in good condition are probably in single numbers.
Having said that, this title pairs beautifully with 'Phillida', the first ever publication in 1924.
So if you are lucky enough to have two good examples of these two titles, I would imagine you have some 'hen's teeth' also.!
Although these prints are some of the early publications, we must not confuse that with Russell Flint's experience.
By the time 'Clarissa Fishing' was published the artist was well into his forties, and had been painting and drawing some thirty years.
