“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
Carlyle Burrows of the Herald Tribune (1934)
“She achieves dynamic
flowing line, contributing to significant form, giving an amazing quality of
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.”
