The Art of William Russell Flint

Sir William Russell Flint was the Artist Laureate to Queen Victoria at the end of her reign, and while he was highly regarded in his own era as one of the great artists of the time, his work has largely been forgotten today. However, he left behind a legacy of extraordinary illustrations on classical themes and we’ve preserved some of the best selections in our Flint collection.

Flint was influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite movement, and also by stylized neoclassical art of the Renaissance. Many of his paintings have the appearance of classical friezes with very stylized composition and beautiful use of rich color and intriguing details.

Our collection is drawn from Flint’s three most famous series of illustrations, his plates for The Greek Heroes, Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and Mallory’s Morte d’Arthur. These are among his best and most beautiful works and show his skills in a variety of styles and themes.

Our Flint package has recently been expanded and many new images have been added, bringing the total to almost 80 high resolution, large-size images, now available for direct download. The complete collection is only $59. As with all of our collections, the images are licensed to you for reprint or inclusion in other publications so long as you are not primarily reselling just the art itself.

The easiest way to get this package is to either order it online or from our toll-free number at 1-512-656-8011. To order online just ORDER HERE
