For almost thirty years, www.russellflint.com has been dealing in fine original works of art by renowned British artists.
We have gained an invaluable amount of knowledge in that time, which we can hopefully pass on to our clients.

Having started from a small shop outside Nottingham, (the rent was twenty pounds a week...!).
We sold a general selection of art and offered a picture framing service.
The frames at that time were all cut by hand and left in clamps overnight to set,
very different from the electronic machinery we use today.

As the business expanded and we gained more knowledge of the art world
and it's most highly regarded artists, we relocated to a gallery in the city.
This became a launching point, resulting in many exhibitions featuring some of the
country's finest artists in attendance, David Shepherd, Gordon King.

The final transition was into a large gallery in the city centre of Nottingham.
This proved to be a tremendous success, as we were able to offer a wide variety of fine
quality investment work, that is usually only available in London.
