Sir William Russell Flint
red chalk drawing
Having attended the Royal college of art in Edinburgh, he trained as a draughtsman for six years at an Edinburgh printers.
This undoubtedly provided him with the skills and self discipline to create very precise and meticulous paintings.
He was an official war artist, which again... before the age of cameras, was an extremely important job to recreate the exact scene,
be it on a battlefield, or most importantly to accurately illustrate wounds and diseases
William Russell Flint received a knighthood in 1947.
His work was given supreme prominence by a retrospective exhibition in the Diploma Gallery of the Royal Academy 1962.
Russell Flint's paintings were collected not only by private individuals, worldwide, but many of his watercolours are now hanging in museums throughout the world.
The evolving passion in his work led him to the French countryside, where he enjoyed painting and travelling across many rural landscapes
and produced a fine selection of original paintings, many of which were published as signed limited edition prints.
