Amerikanische Moderne – Eines von 75 Exemplaren. - Aus der Suite "In Barcelona" aus dem Portfolio "California". Hrsg. v. Ediciones Polígrafa, Barcelona. Druck Polígrafa Obra Gráfica, ebd.- Fortwährend untersucht Bell die Eigenschaften von Licht auf Oberflächen. Indem er mit der Beschaffenheit verschiedener Oberflächentexturen und ihrem Bezug zum Raum experimentiert, entwickelt er eine Vorgehensweise voller Spontaneität und Intuition. Die Farblithographien seiner Barcelona-Serie sind von Transparenz und Verdichtung geprägt. Innerhalb der Druckgraphik bot ihm die Lithographie die Möglichkeit, viele dünne Farbschichten übereinander aufzutragen und so verschiedene Tonwerte, Farbübergänge und -deckungen zu kreieren.

American Modernism – Colour lithograph on wove cardboard. Signed and numbered. Edges isolated bumped. Very good condition. Splendid print in bright, strong colours of the full-size depiction. - One of 75 copies. - From the suite "In Barcelona" from the portfolio "California". Piblished by Ediciones Poligrafa, Barcelona. Printed by Ploígrafa Obra Gráfica,ibid. - Bell continually explores the characteristics of light on surfaces. Experimenting with the nature of different surface textures and their relation to space, he develops an approach full of spontaneity and intuition. The color lithographs in his Barcelona series are characterized by transparency and compression. Within printmaking, lithography offered him the possibility of applying many thin layers of color on top of each other, creating different tonal values, color transitions and coverages.
