A "LIFE" Magazine "W T Benda" Gallery

Wladyslaw T. BENDA (1873-1948) is most well known for his theatrical masks. He also invented the very successful "Benda Girl". Her success as a beautifully illustrated figure kept him working as an illustrated for most major magazines. His Polish background also made his flair for Eastern European scenes an important contribution to his illustration career. His illustrations were often a combination of pencil, ink, charcoal and watercolor or pastel.
