Biography Joseph Behensky
Joseph Behensky, a landscape artist, was born in Prague. He came to the United States as a young man after some art education in Prague and Munich. He settled in Illinois and began training at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago.
Behensky's wife, a Galena, Illinois native, introduced him to her hometown. Behensky quickly fell in love with the rolling landscapes and ever changing colors and textures of the region. It became a favorite subject for him to paint, and he spent much of his life documenting the area throughout its changes of season.
