Benson, Frank Weston (24 March 1862 - November 15, 1951) - American impressionist painter.
He was born in Salem, Massachusetts, in a family of prosperous businessmen. Benson to the will of his father and his skeptical attitude towards the career of the artist in 1879 entered the School of Fine Arts in Boston and later at the Academy Julian in Paris, which for many young American artists of that era became mandatory on the path to artistic recognition. Upon returning to America in 1885, along with Benson Tarbellom opened a Boston studio painting. In the same year he began teaching at the School of Fine Arts, and was a member of the Society of American artists of the progressive alternative to the National Academy of Design. Through his paintings, and participation in professional organizations, artists, Frank Benson was one of the leaders in the development of American Impressionism. His creative works include landscapes, still life, sports themes, and the birds he painted in watercolor and oil. His images of young girls in white dresses on the open slopes of all the winds gave the definition of an aspect of American Impressionism. He deliberately chose the theme of his creative modern American woman, as he understood it - "the ideal of grace, dignity, elegance». Like the majority of American Impressionists, Benson conservative in its approach. His work is in scintillating rays of reflected light, they do not dissolve in a color haze .
