“To feel is to know and to know is to feel; all my paintings represent that through color, line, and subject.” Gershon Benjamin (1899-1985)

Intimate friends with Milton Avery, Adolf Gottlieb, Archile Gorky, and Mark Rothko, Benjmain co-forged an American Modern Abstract interpretation of man and nature using minimal lines, flattened perspective, muted color fields, and all areas of the canvas surface to communicate his subjective psychological response to his subjects. Benjamin's works are held in the collections of discriminating collectors and museums.
