Since I put up the post about Lawrence Bell recently, a number of readers have written to me, including one who sent this print from his collection today. So far as I am aware, this is the first time it has appeared online. It does have a title which I can't make out but it looks very much like southern France although I associate the white bonnets with Breton women.
The main information is that Bell described himself as an engraver living at 13a Heath St, Hampstead. The only exhibition records given were for two watercolours shown at the Glasgow Institute in 1921 and 1922. This isn't much to go on but it far more than we had previously and I would think that this must be the right person.
I have included his view of the Porta Capuana in Naples done before the houses and the upper structure were removed. They were certainly there in the earlier part of the C20th as you can see from this intriguing photograph which appears to show the street under water. Also included is one of the etchings. This is in the style of Alphonse Legros who taught at the Slade School of Art until 1893. Whether Bell was a student there is another matter but it certainly maintains the links with France.
