Charles Bell

Charles Bell (1935 – 1995) was an American Photorealist, known primarily for his large scale still lifes.
With a subject matter primarily of vintage toys, gumball machines, and dolls and action figures (the latter frequently arranged in classical poses), Bell sought to bring pictorial majesty and wonder to the mundane. Bell's work, created in his New York loft studio on West Broadway, is noted not only for the glass-like surface of his works, done largely in oil, but also for their significant scale.
