                                  by Brian 'Braaq' Shields

The low horizon line allows the heavy, polluted skies and industrial fog to dominate the scene of a football match, which would normally take centre stage and yet here takes up less than half the image. The void of empty space created by the oppressive sky and the bright green pitch in the foreground mean that all of the action unfolds along the horizontal of the painting, distorting any sense of natural perspective, a technique which Braaq used often.

These ideas and techniques were learnt in Paris where she became influenced by the Impressionists, particularly by Monet. She was well known for her paintings of women and children, like with this intimate scene of a mother and child which would be a lovely addition to any collection. MAKE AN ENQUIRY

We have to remember that although we are now quite used to seeing pictorial arrangements like this in the 21st Century, when this oil on board was executed in 1913, his work was incredibly avant-garde, challenging much of the sentimental landscapes that were still being reproduced by the bulk of commercial Edwardian artists in Britain.

The Times’ obituary paid tribute to his exceptional mastery of the watercolour medium: ‘Sir William Russell Flint, RA, who has died at the age of 89, will be chiefly remembered as a watercolourist of remarkable technical skill. Though he painted also in oils and tempera and produced a considerable number of etchings and dry-points, his most characteristic works were watercolour landscapes and figure compositions, elaborately carried out and displaying great virtuosity, in the gradations of a wash and a special manner of enriching its effect by taking advantage of a grained surface paper’.
