Sir William Russell Flint, born 1880 entered the world of art as a commercial apprentice at the age of fourteen. Over the next seventy-five years, he was to rise to the pinnacle of his chosen profession.
He became President of the Royal Society of Painters in Water Colours, a Trustee of the Royal Academy of Art, Senior Royal Academician and a Knight Bachelor.
Sir William’s work has been available in limited edition form for almost 90 years, beginning in 1924 with the first signed limited edition print Phillida. Until his death in 1969 a total of 106 signed limited editions were published by a number of different publishers. With the approval of the Russell Flint family, posthumous publishing of unsigned limited edition prints began in 1970.
