Henri (Jean Henri) Benner (1776 Mühlhousen - 1836 Paris) already in his youth had painted oil portraits and landscapes and probably produced copper engravings as well. He traveled to Paris and through Germany and returned to Mühlhausen for a short period (1803/1804). For roughly a year (1815-1816) he evidently stayed in Warsaw, where he created portraits of many Polish aristocrats and artists. Afterwards he began his studies with Isabey in Paris, who influenced him decisively. Due to Isabey's connections Benner was appointed court painter to Alexander I in St. Petersburg in 1817, where he remained until 1828. He not only painted numerous members of the court, but he also produced copies of Isabey's and other works. In 1820 he published graphical reproductions of portrait miniatures of the Russian nobility. The insolvency of the publishing house led to Benner's financial ruin. In vain he tried to collect his money in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kursk. Completely impoverished he returned to Mühlhausen and devoted himself to glass painting.
