Benjamin Blessum was an American painter, graphic artist and illustrator. He was primarily known for his Norwegian landscapes. Blessum was born in Marstein, Romsdalen, Norway. He was the son of shoemaker Johan Blessum and Marit Trøen from Vågå, Gudbrandsdal. His family emigrated from Trondheim in 1888 to Menominee, Wisconsin, when he was 11 years old.
