About this Item

First edition. Limited to 2000 copies. Illustrated on virtually every page with hundreds of finely reproduced images of Cecil Bellís painting, the vast majority in colour. 4to, publisherís original navy cloth, lettered on the spine and upper cover in silver, with blue printed illustrated endpapers from a New York street scene by Cecil Bell, in the original dustjacket with color illustration. 160pp. A very fine copy, the white paper of the dustjacket just the slightest bit mellowed, with a neat gift inscription on the title-page. Cecil C. Bell is one of the most unique and exuberant American painters of the 20th century. His works are vibrant in color, rich in depth, always spiced with a healthy dose of humor and, particularly in his New York City paintings, uncommonly good at capturing the day to day, the common thread and the simple, clumsy "Democratic Vistas" of the American Experience. His images have been said to do with paint what Walt Whitmanís poetry did with words; "comprehending and effusing for the men and women of the States, what is universal, native, common to all, inland and seaboard, northern and southern.".
