about Soliloquy on the Enemies of Beauty

Fragmented into jagged edges and sharp points, this crystalline abstraction by Benjamin Benno highlights the artist’s Cubistic, avant-garde style while showcasing his careful attention to detail and use of light and texture.

 An original watercolor and ink drawing by Benjamin Benno, American (1901 - 1980).  By the early 1930s he had established a reputation as a member of the international avant-garde and exhibited with the most significant European artists including Paul Klee, Max Ernst, Wassily Kandinsky, Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, Hans Arp, and Fernand Léger. Pablo Picasso sponsored Benno’s first one-man show in Paris in 1934.
