Julian Bell is a painter living in Lewes, Sussex. He writes about art for various magazines and has also written several books including What is Painting? Representation and Modern Art (1999) and Mirror of the World: A New History of Art (2007).

Paintings of Julian's owned by collectors are grouped here under the categories Land and Road; Room and Window; He, She, They; Sky, Wall, Earth and Short Stories.

All Julian's unsold work up to March 2014 was destroyed when the building housing his studio caught fire on the 29th of that month. (For details of this, see Julian's article When fire claims a lifetime's work - The Guardian.)

Since that date, Julian has been at work on a sequence of paintings based on the Book of Genesis. The sequence will be exhibited in full in Summer 2015 by St Anne's Galleries, Lewes. All sales enquiries should be addressed to St Anne's Galleries.
