    “Whether working on a figure in the round or in bas-relief, Enid Bell has instilled her sculptures with vigor and strength.  They have beautiful rhythm, grace and assurance.”

-         Emily Grauer of the N.Y. World Telegram (1934)

    “All of Miss Bell’s work shows cultivated feeling for composition, grace of line and assured command of her materials.”

-         Carlyle Burrows of the Herald Tribune (1934)

    “She achieves dynamic flowing line, contributing to significant form, giving an amazing quality of plasticity.”

-         N.Y. Times

    Ms. Bell “is a master sculptor and ceramist of long accomplishment and recognition”

-         Michael Lenson of the Newark Evening News (September 15, 1968)

    “This is sculpture marked by classic form developed to a high degree of technical excellence and strongly realized rhythm that is all too seldom seen in three-dimensional work.”

-         Santa Fe “New Mexican”
