Q is for Quentin

Q is for Quentin Bell.

As you can imagine it was a little bit of a struggle to come up with a Q, I think this is acceptable.

Quentin Claudian Stephen Bell (1910-1996) - with a name like that he has to be from a artistic family. If he was a horse he would have perfect pedigree !! the son of Bloomsbury Set icons Vanessa and Clive Bell, nephew of Virgina Woolf. He was an artist,  potter and writer whose contribution to art pottery are his slightly crudely potted and naively hand painted works - very much Omega Workshop.
