Hans Knol ten Bensel
Ten Bensel (1947) has been surrounded by art since his childhood. His grandfather, the successful artist Jan Kuper, introduced him to the art of drawing and painting from his early years. His father, the well-known journalist Theo Knol ten Bensel, instilled in him a love for photography as well as a love for the written word. His curiosity and inventiveness, but also and especially his talent, ensured that Knol ten Bensel would excel in each of these different disciplines.
For example, there are the photos he took of Florence, and his pastel, oil and watercolor works and his corona pen drawings. NIQUI Gallery displayed the pen drawings at their end-of-year expo.
