Wilhelm Bendz - Large Format Fine Art Prints and Reproductions

Wilhelm Bendz, born March 20, 1804 in Odense, died November 14, 1832 (at the age of 28) in Vicenza, is a genre painter and portraitist of the golden age of Danish painting.

After studying at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Denmark where he received medals and awards, he worked in the studio of Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg.

He is also interested in German painting which technique he acquires by his own. Posterity has mostly retained his portraits. But his many allegorical works and genre scenes were much appreciated in his time. He perfectly mastered the technique of chiaroscuro.

It was during his last trip to Italy that Bendz fell ill and died in Vicenza in 1832.

He left many portraits of his contemporaries all of them exposed at the Statens Museum for Kunst.
