Delorme was an eminent medical practitioner, physician to Louis XIII and the French court. He is ‘framed’ in a landscape full of symbols in praise of the doctor’s character and reputation. The elm trees make a visual play on his name which translates as “of the elm” (orme is French for elm tree).

Callot etched only a few portraits.

Sir WILLIAM RUSSELL FLINT R.A.,, Edinburgh 1880 – 1969 London. Clatter and Whirl, Granada. Original drypoint, 1931. This print is for sale, priced £650

Sir WILLIAM RUSSELL FLINT R.A., P.R.W.S., R.E.
Edinburgh 1880 – 1969 London

Flint was apprenticed as a boy in Edinburgh to a firm of lithographers, and attended evening classes in art. Aged about twenty he moved to London and worked as an illustrator, studying in his spare time at Heatherley’s School of Art.

A visit to Florence inspired him briefly to try etching in 1912-13 at Hammersmith Art School but he would note later “Acid is disagreeable stuff, and it turned me away from etching”. In the following years he devoted himself to watercolour painting with growing virtuosity.

It was only as the Etching Boom was failing, in 1928, that Flint resumed original printmaking, working in drypoint and thus avoiding acid.

He printed his own editions, and like Whistler and McBey sort out, when possible, interesting old paper, inscribing the sheets with details and date of manufacture.

CERI RICHARDS, Dunvant, Swansea 1903 – 1971 London. Shadow in a Room. Original colour lithograph, 1950. This print is for sale, priced £650

CERI RICHARDS
Dunvant, Swansea 1903 – 1971 London

Richards initially took drawing classes in relation to his engineering apprenticeship, before attending Cardiff School of Art full time in 1919. Three years later he went on to the Royal College of Art in London.

In the 1930’s Richards progressed through abstraction and Surrealism in collages and paintings. Surrealism “helped me be aware of the mystery, even the ‘unreality’ of ordinary things”.

Until the late 1940’s Richards had made few prints. Encouraged by Caroline Lucas and Frances Byng Stamper at the Miller’s Press, and the Redfern Gallery, where they organised their exhibitions, he found his metier in colour lithography.

He exhibited three prints in the first exhibition of the London Society of Painter-Printers (established by the ‘Millers’) in 1948 at the Redfern Gallery.

Music and poetry inspired much of his work and his use of visual imagery has analogous correspondences. The play of light and shadow in an interior, as in Shadow in a Room, was also the subject of several of Richard’s paintings of the time.
