Born in Philadelphia, George Bensell studied at the Pennsylvania Academy and became a portrait, poetical genre, landscape, and historical painter. The Philadelphia Sketch Club was formed in his studio in 1860, and he served as the Club's first president. He was also an instructor at the Pennsylvania Academy and with Samuel Diffield in 1867, wrote a twenty-two page poem, "The Artist's Dream".
