SIR WILLIAM RUSSELL FLINT P.R.A., P.R.W.S., R.S.W., R.O.I., R.E
A beautiful study of Cecilia Green looking at a piece of jewellry, a classic pose by Russell Flint at his finest.
The delicacy and transluscence of her dress is almost an impossible task to achieve with watercolours, yet Flint is able to produce such an effect with great ease.
It is interesting to see, that in 2010, this painting was purchased by a gentleman in Buenos Aires, Arentina for £74,000
Which goes to illustrate Flint's worldwide appeal.
