Benson was born and raised in Salem, Massachusetts. He sepnt a great deal of time in the salt marshes that surrounded this costal town studying, as well as hunting, various waterfowl. He painted his first oil of shore birds at the age of twelve. At nineteen he attended the School of Drawing and Painting of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. While attending the school he produced his first etching, "Salem Harbor." In 1883 he traveled to Paris to study at the Academie Julie and for the next thirty years devoted his artistic talent to painting and watercolor. In 1912 at the age of fifty he again began to produce prints. At first, these prints were portraits, then of waterfowl and nature oriented subjects, totaling over 355 various prints before his death in 1951. Today, Benson is considered the founder of the school of American sporting art and his prints are some of the most desirable.
