Henry Benson Art

HENRY BENSON (USA, 1930–98)

Henry Benson was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1930 and died in Florida in 1998. He later moved to Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. Upon finishing high school, he joined the US Marine Corp and fought in the First Marine Division of the Korean War. Benson attended art school in Paris, France and New York City. He worked at the American Journal and the New York Stock Exchange in addition to being an accomplished professional artist. He moved to Boca Raton, Florida in 1975 and worked as an Impressionist painter. He loved people and always had a great sense of humor. Benson used an innovative technique, which produced work that was Impressionistic, with a raised surface that had an almost sandy texture. This was his signature style of painting. The technique involved applying a rough-textured surface to the canvas before starting his paintings. Benson was best known for his beach scenes with children as well as his lifestyle scenes of New York City.
