    Created in 1985, Series II Cube is one of the largest examples of Bell's coated glass cubes and is in many ways a zenith of his experiments in this area. According to the artist, fewer than six such cubes were ever created. Standing on a transparent base, the cube has dual properties of a mirrored surface and a transparent optic wonder. Sections of this monumental cube were recently re-fabricated by the artist in his Taos, New Mexico studio. The cube was then reassembled under the supervision of the artist by Jack Brogan of Brogan Studios, Los Angeles.

    This lot will only preview in our Los Angeles office. For additional information, contact the department.
