James Bell (fl.1890-1910)

Liverpool School

James Bell was listed in the Liverpool directory of 1905 as a maritime artist and former sailor, but little else is known about the artist. He is said to have served aboard the ships SS POLITICIAN and RMS KARINA. The artist appears to have specialized in ship portraits on milk glass, all of similar design featuring the image of a ship within a life ring. A few of Bell's works are held in the collection of the Merseyside Museum in Liverpool.
