An unusual yet striking painting of Cecilia Green; published in ninteen seventy three, four years after Flint's death.
Very fine wok, not only of Cecilia's features, but the blend of colours in the dress against the strong Red Background.
The Fine Art Trade Guild stamp can be seen off the image at the bottom of the paicture in the middle, which signifies un unsigned edition.

It must be mentioned that the work of one particulary successful artist some forty to fifty years ago has now moved into enormous prominence both artistically and financially.
The signed prints and paintings of L.S.Lowry are increasing in value on a regular basis and his work has now become of greater value than many modern masters. View here.
