Product description

Elegant book presenting the life and work of one of Britain's leading painters. Trevor Bell's big, bold, beautiful paintings have been featured at Tate St Ives - reflecting his status as a key figure in the development of painting in the past half century. The book is illustrated from cover to cover with a lifetime's work on canvas and paper, and with fascinating documentary photographs from the artist's own archive. From the talented Yorkshire lad who loved jazz and big motorbikes, Bell became a revered elder statesman of abstract painting in Britain. Trevor Bell's work is introduced by Chris Stephens of Tate Britain, a leading authority on 20th and 21st-century painting. Elizabeth Knowles' biography follows Bell from Leeds to London and St Ives, through his years in Florida and back to Cornwall, where he now lives and works. Besides the landscapes closest to his heart - the Yorkshire moors, the steamy 'heatscape' of Florida and the wild Atlantic coasts of Cornwall - Bell's inspiration has often come from his travels - always far off the beaten track in India, the Himalayas, Burma, Mexico, Cuba and Peru. The book reflects the monumental scale and glorious colour of Trevor Bell's major paintings. His resonant and uniquely accessible paintings are its essential content. Bell's particular character as an artist comes from the way he orchestrates his work with perfect craftsmanship, only to create an opportunity for radical innovation. He pushes for the unexpected, this extraordinary creative energy permeating the book and providing an exhilarating breath of fresh air.

This copy is in very good condition.
