John W. Bentley Paintings
Jane Bolig (03/29/2008)
My mother had two 11"X15" John W. Bentley paintings, which she passed onto her sister, who passed them onto me: Reynolds Saw Mill and Down on the Farm. The saw mill is depicted in what I take to be late afternoon winter sunshine. The other, also in winter, seems to be early morning overlooking a snowy field with a white house and red outbuildings in the middle distance. They hung in our living room when I was a child and I hated them because they looked gloomy--depressingly evocative of eastern winters. After I grew up I came to love them for much the same reason. Mr. Bentley supposedly is related to my grandmother's family. She was born a Bentley and lived in Paterson, NJ. According to my aunt, my paintings were purchased by an artist boyfriend, who gave them to my mother. Two things I keep promising myself: To have them appraised and to have them cleaned. Having them appraised sounds like fun, but having them cleaned means picking the proper person and I have no idea how to do that.

John Bentley continues to be an interesting, lesser known but talented American / Woodstock impressionist. I'd like to hear from other collectors. I have a copy of a 300-page manuscript he wrote in 1940 about his experiences in the South Pacific.

John W Bentley Photographs

As a private collector of John W Bentley, I have been doing research on his personal life. I am interested in acquiring and sharing original photos, letters and other documentation of a personal nature, especially if it relates to his art. Feel free to contact me if you have anything interesting. Have a great day!

JWB (my great-uncle) was the son of Samuel and Sophia Bentley of Patterson, New Jersey. Good luck finding your J.T. Bentley! Debbie
