The Benton is pleased to present a changing selection of its most prized possessions that span five centuries. We begin with a sixteenth-century double portrait by the Spanish court painter Alonso Sanchez Coello, whose unidentified subjects are a well-dressed noblewoman and child.
Ellen Emmet Rand (March 4, 1875 – December 18, 1941) was a prolific American painter and illustrator. The Benton's collection proudly hosts a large sample of her artworks.
