Notes

First edition of this uncommon catalogue, printed in May 1937. These ephemeral documents were printed in small runs and were freely distributed as advertisements for both the artist and the gallery. As well as the tipped-in reproduction of Bell's work, the catalogue lists a number of upcoming exhibitions that were to be held. "The first exhibition consisting solely of her own work was held at the Independent Gallery in London in 1922, and in the years that followed she had solo shows at the Cooling, Lefevre, Leicester, and Adams galleries" (ODNB). In 1937 Bell was a sponsor of, and taught at, the School of Painting and Drawing (later known as the Euston Road School) which opened in Fitzroy Street in October of that year.
