and a good selection of watercolours
The Dordogne has always been a favourite for Russell Flint, and he has produced many highly acclaimed works of art, close to the picturesque towns of St. Jean deCole and Brantome is La Chabroulie, www.perigeux.com.
Particularly collectable prints are those which have been personally signed and published as a limited edition.
In fact when published, the whole limited edition was often bought within hours.
These prints do not exist in any other form, there is only one limited edition signed print run, which is copyrighted, these art works have now become
valuable items, the early publications date back some 70 years.

His unique style has elevated Sir William and his work to the highest realms of the watercourist's world, and enjoys the respect and admiration of many fellow artists, critics and collectors alike.
World renowned David Shepherd artist is of particular importance, his work can be viewed at www.davidshepherd.com. The paintings and signed prints are an amazing expression that captures the feeling and the character of a scene. It must be mentioned that the artwork of one particulary successful artist some forty to fifty years ago has now moved into enormous prominence both artistically and financially.
The artwork of Mr L.S. Lowry continues to climb in financial terms at an incredible velocity and has now become of greater value than such modern masters as Picasso.
