Thomas Benrimo (1887-1958)
Born and coming from a noted show business family, Thomas Daniel "Duncan" Benrimo showed early talent as an artist-illustrator. In April 1906, The San Francisco Earthquake destroyed most of his early art work and displaced most of his family. Arriving in New York, he was joined by his Elder Brother, Actor-Performer, Joseph Harry Benrimo, and worked at stage-set desiging. Later, he settled back as an artist-illustrator. As an Illustrator for Fortune, Scribner's and Harper's, Benrimer also taught at Pratt Institute. After relocating to Taos, Benrimer was included in group and solo exhibitions in New York and San Francisco. His work is held by museums including the Denver Art Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art and Fort Worth Art Museum. www.geni.com/people/Tom-Benrimo/6000000025227453583
