The Fountain

Russell Flint





Date of Publication 1928.
Signed,Limited Edition print of 300.

The communal water facilities peculiar to France have left us with two anachronistic architectural features in most small provincal towns, the Lavoir and the Pompe.
This print prosaically called "The Fountain" was sub-titled "A Vision of Loveliness". As a watercolour it was even more prosaically entitled "The Water-Tower",
and is an early example of a publisher re-naming a subject to add to its appeal when reproduced.
