SIR WILLIAM RUSSELL FLINT P.R.A., P.R.W.S., R.S.W., R.O.I., R.E

Barbaste lies on the River Gelise, where it joins the Baise, several miles south of Nerac.
It is spanned by an impressive medieval bridge which is guarded on its right bank by a powerful fortress which also functioned as a mill.
As with the bridge at Nerac, Sir William ignored the more picturesque aspects of this view and, doubtlessly to avail himself of a more shady spot,
he chose to paint what is in reality a somewhat uninteresting and drab accretion to the main building.
The castle was one of the fortified homes of King Henry IV of France.

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.
