William Bennett
1811 - 1871

William Bennett (1811–1871) was an English watercolour landscape painter.

It is believed that Bennett received his first lessons in art from David Cox. They went on painting trips to beauty spots in north
Wales, the north of England and Scotland, with David Cox Jnr (Cox's son) and other artist friends.[1] In 1848 he was made a
member of the New Water-Colour Society, and contributed landscapes, chiefly of English scenery, to their exhibitions, until his
death in 1871. He also exhibited at the Royal Academy (RA), British Institution (BI) and the Royal Society of British Artists
(RBA).
