Claude Flight (1881 – 1955) British Artist and Decorator.
Flight is best known for establishing the linocut method of printmaking. He felt by promoting the use of cheap and easily obtained new material. He was making it possible for the masses to be exposed to art. He saw in it the potentiality of a truly democratic art form.
Flight was a member of the Seven and Five Society in 1923, including Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson, and Barbara Hepworth. He was a member of the Grubb Group in 1928. He was a central figure in the Grosvenor School of Modern Art (founded 1925), where he and Edith Lawrence taught. With Lawrence, he set up a small interior design and decoration firm; receiving modest commissions, (with Lawrence) applied their somewhat bold taste reminiscent of the colourful designs of the Omega workshop.
