Sir William Russell Flint (English, 1880 - 1969)
Edinburgh-born William Russell Flint is best known for his watercolours of naked, nubile women. He began his career as an apprentice lithographer in Edinburgh, moving to London in 1900 where he worked as a medical illustrator and later as a magazine illustrator. During the First World War Russell Flint worked with the Admiralty, finally being appointed to an Airship Station on the Clyde. After the War he became a full-time artist and was often inspired by Greek and Roman themes. A supremely gifted watercolourist, he became President of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour in 1936. His work remains highly popular today in colour reproductions.
