Frank Weston Benson (1862 – 1951) was an Impressionist known for his tranquil, light-filled scenes of women and children. Using delicate colors and visible brushstrokes to capture the fleeting nature of light and atmosphere, he often featured his wife and daughters in the landscapes and seascapes he created. Feeling restricted by the conservative Society of American Artists, Benson left to form The Ten, a group of painters who displayed their work at personal exhibitions. Benson, also considered one of the 20th century’s most gifted wildlife painters, established the sporting print as a respected art form.
