Sir William Russell Flint (1880-1969) is acknowledged to be one of the finest watercolour artists of the twentieth century. He enjoyed unprecedented success in a variety of media, although is best remembered for his landscapes, historical subjects and semi-nudes in Spanish settings.
See for his full biography.

After distinguished service in the Royal Navy Air Service and the RAF during the Great War Flint became a professional painter and developed the hallmark style which has become legendary. Flint was elected President of what is now the Royal Watercolour Society and exhibited in all the leading galleries, including the Royal Academy, where he was elected a full member in 1933. He was later given the ultimate accolade by his peers of a one-man exhibition at the Royal Academy during his lifetime. In 1947 he was knighted by King George VI for his services to art. Today his work can be found in most major public galleries and his limited-edition prints are well known. His original works are some of the finest and most sought after in the world.

This original watercolour painting by Sir William Russell Flint was produced by him specifically for the 1910-1911 book of King Arthur and his Noble Knights of the Round Table “Le Morte Darthur” (as it was originally and ungrammatically spelt in Middle French, before becoming known as Le Morte d’Arthur). Flint produced all the illustrations of the book. A hardback copy of the second volume of the 1920 edition by the publisher Philip Lee Warner for the Medici Society Ltd, (which is complete but with the spine cover unattached) is held by Big Sky Fine Art and will be provided to the purchaser of this painting. This volume contains colour images of 18 illustrations produced by Flint, with the painting offered here reproduced as the frontispiece. The quote underneath this image in the book is “Sir Lancelot beheld the young squire and saw him seemly and demure with all manner of good features, that he weened of his age never to have seen so fair a man of form”.
