Sir William Russell Flint. 1880-1969.
sir william russell flint 2

Sir William Russell Flint, was born in Edinburgh on the fourth of April Eighteen eighty.
His father Francis Wighton Flint, was a watercolourist and designer,
William Russell Flint was fortunate that his family was involved in artistic careers. He studied at Daniel Stewarts School, and then joined the Royal Institution College of Artwork in Edinburgh, this was the environment that led him to work on line and colour which progressed into his own unmistakable watercolour style.
His six year apprenticeship as a draughtsman at a large printing factory in Edinburgh, helped to cultivate the disipline required to become an outstanding artist in his own right. In 1903 Russell Flint began work at the Illustrated London News drawing illustrations. This was the era before photos, a time where drawings and engravings have been the only source of illustration for books and magazines.

The Illustrated London News was read across the world, (the British Commonwealth being very much larger than it is today) and the name of William Russell Flint travelled across the continents providing the basis for the international recognition he was later to receive as a watercolour artist.

During this period and WW1, Russell Flint also produced illustrations for some great classic writings such as "Thomas a Kempis", "The Song of Solomon", Mallory's "Morte d'Arthur", Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" and Homer's "Odyssey".
Throughout the conflict, Flint was in the Royal Navy Air Service and by 1918 he was promoted to Admiralty Assistant Overseer; He was able to travel back to Scotland where he studied at the art School.

When the war finished, he went to Europe, particularly, France, where he began to paint and sketch landscapes of the many small countryside towns and their way of life, the publication of his limited edition prints show his journeys through much of France. Russell Flint became an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1924 and nine years after, he was elected a full member.

1936 saw Russell Flint become the President of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour. Throughout the early 1940s, Russell and Sybil Flint went to live in Devon on a farm that reared poultry. Having served in the RAF, he was allowed to visit Devonport Dockyard,( of which a limited edition has been published, and was described as a masterpiece of perspective) and paint, whenever he wished.

In 1945 William Russell Flint and his wife Sybil returned to their home at Peel Cottage, Campden Hill, London. 1947 saw Russell Flint knighted and he painted throughout his life until the age of 89 when he died. His work as a professional artist spanned many years and he was later able to create a unique feel to his paintings that produced his most recognizable style. The paintings he produced were less rigid and he was able to show in exquisite detail, the different textures of materials, buildings, and of course, flesh.

Sir William Russell Flint has given and continues to give great joy to many individuals across the world.
His signed limited edition prints and original paintings, have become extremely collectable, and his work enjoys a great following as some of the finest watercolour paintings in the world today.

He was a much liked architectural, watercolour artist, who was most famous for his paintings of female nudes.In the art world,

His father was an industrial artist and as a boy he joined a lithographic company where he spent six years learning about the printing industry and the many different techniques used. Russell Flint was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in eighteen hundred and eighty, his gift for painting was soon impressing both his fellow artists and the general public.

During his student days at the Edinburgh Royal Institution Faculty of Artwork, and after working for six years at the lithographic printing company, he made the decision to live in London and work as an illustrator in the world of medicine, and then in 1903 he became an illustrator for the Illustrated London News which , due to worldwide distribution, publicised his work across the globe. In nineteen hundred and five he married an admiral's daughter, Sibylle Sueter in 1905 and his work continued to flourish so that two years later he was able to become a freelance artist which gave him the opportunity to illustrate several classical special editions for example; Mallory's 'Morte D'Arthur', Chaucer's 'Canterbury Tales' and Homer's 'Odyssey'.

During WW1 his job was the Admiralty assistant overseer of Airships . He returned to his birthplace of Scotland, and some years later painted a watercolour titled ' Hilda's Bonnet' on a small piece of material from HM Airship 24 which he had been in charge.

Three years later he became President of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour. Leaving their home in Devon, where they had lived throughout the Great War, Russell Flint and Syblle decided to return to Campden Hill, London, which proved a tremendous success for Russell Flint as the nation was begining to recover from the years of war, and begining to enjoy the arts once more.
