About The Artist: Benjamin Benno

Born in 1901, Benjamin Greenstein Benno was regarded as an artistic prodigy from a young age. After living in Russia for a short time after the death of his mother in 1905, Benno and his father relocated to New York where he was quickly enrolled in the Ferrer Modern School at the young age of eleven. After studying for several years at the progressive school, Benno moved to Paris in 1926 but returned to New York only a few years later in 1931....

About The Medium: Charcoal

A form of dry art medium made of finely ground organic materials that are held together by a gum or wax binder or produced without the use of binders by eliminating the oxygen inside the material during the production process. Charcoal can produce lines that are very light or intensely black, while being easily removable, yet vulnerable to leaving stains on paper. The dry medium can be applied to almost any surface from smooth to very coarse.
