You’re invited to view the online exhibition Light Sprang Forth – celebrating the paintings of Henri van Bentum, to mark the International Day of Light 2018, May 16th.  “Viewing a painting by Henri van Bentum is a stimulus to the imagination. Perhaps his background as a diamond-faceter’s son is responsible for the almost crystalline aspect of his work. The single most extraordinary quality in all his paintings is a luminosity, a radiance that emanates from within.” Marina Sturdza 

“Light Sprang Forth”, acrylic on canvas 1964, by Henri van Bentum, Private Collection
