Cecilia Green was Sir William Russell Flint's favourite model for many years. She had trained as a bellerina,
which gave her, not only he form that Russell Flint admired for his paintings, but the ability to hold certain poses for long periodsof time.

If you wish to visit the beautiful countryside and villages in the south west of France where Flint spent much of his time painting,
a beautiful holiday house in Dordogne is to let throughout the year.
