Gleaming Sands -  FLINT

Gleaming Sands
Drypoint, circa 1930, edition unknown. 13 3/8 x 8 1/2 in. Signed in the plate, lower right. Signed and numbered "xxviii" in ink. This is a stellar impression printed with tone. The margins are full and the condition is fine apart from old hinges at the top, verso. The paper bears a partial WHATMAN watermark. Flint was born in Edinburgh and he was a remarkable draughtsman from the beginning of his career. He started as a medical illustrator and later worked as an illustrator for the London Daily News. At his peak, he excelled in watercolor, oil painting and printmaking. Gleaming Sands is representative of his best work in drypoint.

Nursemaids in the Piazza, Venice -  FLINT

Nursemaids in the Piazza, Venice
Drypoint, 1929, Wright 16; edition 75. 9 3/8 x 14 in. Signed in ink, lower right, and numbered in ink from the edition. This is a fine, richly inked impression on off-white paper. The margins are full with a deckle edge on all sides. The condition is good other than old remains of adhesive at the four margin corners, recto, and light toning on the verso from an earlier non-archival backing. This elaborate, group study shows Flint as a supreme draughtsman. In the tradition of Whistler, the artist explores the beauty of Venice with subtlety and stylish observation.
