Sir William Russell Flint (1880-1969) was a Scottish artist and illustrator who was mainly 
known for his paintings of women in watercolours, but he also worked in oils, tempera, and 
printmaking.

He was born in Edinburgh and from 1894 to 1900 Flint apprenticed as a lithographic draughtsman 
while taking classes at the Royal Institute of Art. In 1902 he began work as a medical illustrator 
in London while studying part-time at Heatherley’s Art School. He also furthered his art education 
by studying independently at the British Museum. He was an artist for The Illustrated London News 
from 1903 to 1907 and in 1912 produced illustrations for Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales.

Flint was elected president of Britain’s Royal Society of Painters in Watercolours 
(now the Royal Watercolour Society) in 1936 to 1956, and was knighted by King George VI in 1947.
