One of a number in my shop inventory, this is a fresh and clean example of one of William Russell Flint's fine color photolithographs issued for collectors over a period of decades. This example, published in 1961 in an edition of 750, is signed in pencil at lower right and bears the characteristic embossed blindstamp in lower left margin. The title is "The Shower". The print measures 17 3/4" by 22 1/2" inside the mat and 26 1/2" by 30 1/2" as framed. The models, artistically placed in a rising line that culminates in a sort of pyramid of beautiful women at right; the image is a celebration of female beauty, of femininity. WILLIAM RUSSELL FLINT (1880-1969) was a very talented and popular artist who is today best known for his superb draftsmanship and watercolor skills, his favorite subject being sensuous and beautiful women, often in various stages of nudity, against architectural or scenic settings. Flint's best original works command huge sums at auction in London. While he also worked in oil, it is the watercolors that are most coveted by collectors. This print is very clean, and ready for the wall in its simple yet elegant frame and fine mat with hand drawn lines. This print and most of the others I will be listing came out of one Malibu estate. The former owners acquired a print from Harrod's each time they visited London, eventually forming a large collection. Allow for reflections in some images.
