Bennett started specialising in historical genre and portraits often portraying life in seventeenth and eighteenth century England. Many of his works depicted figures in tavern interiors, gentlemen discussing affairs of state or at leisure in their homes such as this fine example. Bennett exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1898 to 1928, with works entitled ‘A Book Plate’ (1898), ‘The Greek Runner Ladas Falling Dead as he goes to receive his crown at Olympia’ (1900). He also exhibited at the Paris Salon, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour.
In 1907 He married Margaret Pellew and they had two children. From 1911, the family lived in London until 1938 when they decided to move to Whetcombe , Devon where they spent the rest of their lives. Bennett died in 1952. Many examples of his works can be found in galleries and museums including the Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool, Sutton Museum, Royal Albert Memorial Museum and the National Portrait Gallery. A number of his works are also held by the National Trust, Cambridge University & Staffordshire County Council.
The paintings are housed in their original double swept gilt frames which are in excellent condition.
