Robert Anning Bell RA, RWS, LLD (1863-1933) born 14 Apr 1863, Soho, London, died 27 Nov 1933.
Robert Anning Bell was a painter, modeller for coloured relief, illustrator and designer of stained glass and mosaics. He studied at Westminster and the Royal Academy Schools. From 1911 he was the Professor of the Design Section at Glasgow School of Art. He was based in London and visited the School when required. From 1903 to 1911 he had been a visiting lecturer to the School and had also been one of the external examiners, so his influence on the section was strong. In 1918 he became Visiting Director of Studies to the Design School, a post he retained until his death in 1933. He also held teaching posts at the Royal College of Art, London and University College, Liverpool.
Presented to GSA upon the artist's death, 1934.
