ONE OF APPROXIMATELY TEN FLINT PRINTS CURRENTLY IN INVENTORY, this is a fresh and clean rather early example of one of William Russell Flint's fine color reproductions issued in limited editions for collectors over a period of decades. This one is signed by the artist in pencil at lower right and bears the characteristic embossed Fine Art Trade Guild blind stamp in lower left margin. The title of this image, which was issued in the year 1942 in an edition of 500 examples, is "Mirror at the Ballet". The print measures 15 1/2" by 19 3/4" inside the mat and 22 1/2" by 27 1/2" as framed. 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 beautiful women 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 (probably from the 1950's, has old Chicago area framer's label). Allow for reflections in some images. SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER WORKS IN MY SHOP.
