A giant among 20th-century Canadian printmakers, Alistair Macready Bell is revered for his moody, expressionistic yet recognizable renderings of boats, birds and animals. He was a gifted student of British Columbia’s wild places and creatures, and he travelled the world to sketch exotic birds and animals. These studies became the basis for the more
than 250 prints he made.
A complete collection of his prints is housed in the permanent collection of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
