A Book of Poems

Russell Flint





Limited edition of 750
Publish date 12th November 2002

One of Sir William's favourite figure studies, this picture has never left the Russell Flint family collection and was chosen by the artist to be illustrated in his post-humously published autobiography 'In Pursuit'.
'A Book of Poems' appears on page 197 accompanied by the following lines written by one of Sir William's closest friends and regular painting companions, the artist and poet Adrian Bury. 'Tell me of Venus rising from the sea,
Of Pschye's fingers ringed by Cupid's hair,
Of Helen's reckless pride, and Hero's care,
Of Daphnis, Chloe, and Persephone'
