About

Frank Moss Bennett British, (1874-1952) In the Garden Oil on panel, signed & dated 1907 Image size: 11 inches x 13.5 inches Size including frame: 20 inches x 22.5 inches Frank Moss Bennett was a portrait and genre painter, who was born in Liverpool on 15 November, 1874. He was born into a wealthy family and showed an early talent for art, but it was not until he left Clifton College in Bristol that he decided to follow a career in painting. He moved to London in 1892 and studied at the Slade School of Art, where he was taught by Henry Tonks and John Singer Sargent. There, he also met fellow artist Eddie Wells, who later became his travel partner and brother-in-law. He also attended the St John’s School of Art and in 1896 he joined the Royal Academy, winning a gold medal and a travel scholarship. He lived in Chislehurst in Kent and moved to Croydon in 1899. In 1900, he finally used the money to go on a painting expedition to Italy with his friend Wells. Bennett specialised in historical genre and portraits often portraying life in seventeenth and eighteenth century England. Many of his works depicted figures in tavern interiors, gentlemen discussing affairs of state or at leisure in their homes. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1898 to 1928, with works entitled ‘A Book Plate’ (1898), ‘The Greek Runner Ladas Falling Dead as he goes to receive his crown at Olympia’ (1900). He also exhibited at the Paris Salon, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour. In 1907 he married Margaret Pellew and together they had two children. From 1911, the family lived in London until 1938 when they decided to move to Whetcombe, Devon where they spent the rest of their lives. Bennett died in 1952. Many examples of his work can be found in galleries and museums including the Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool, Sutton Museum, Royal Albert Memorial Museum and the National Portrait Gallery. A number of his works are also held by the National Trust, Cambridge University & Staffordshire County Council. Presentation: The painting is housed in its original period gilt frame which is in excellent condition. Condition: As with all of our original antique oil paintings, this work is offered in ready to hang gallery condition, having just been professionally cleaned, restored and revarnished.
