Sir William Russell Flint

An original red chalk drawing, of the finest quality, perfectly executed by Russell Flint; A simple pose, yet so effective.
Sanguine or red chalk is chalk of a reddish-brown colour, so called because it resembles the colour of dried blood.
It has been popular for centuries for drawing. The word comes via French from the Italian sanguigna and originally from the Latin "sanguis".
The rural towns and villages that have remained pretty much unchanged since Russell Flint travelled through this part of south west France and produced some stunning paintings,
many of which were published.
Recognized worldwide as a fine watercolour master, Sir William's work enjoys the prominence amongst a collection of the finest and most experienced painters of our time.
