Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

William Behnes was an English sculptor of the early 19th century. Born in London, Behnes was the son of a Hanoverian pianoforte-maker and his English wife. His brother was Henry Behnes, also a sculptor, albeit an inferior one. His early life was spent in Dublin where he studied art at the Dublin Academy.

After the family returned to London, Behnes continued his artistic training, studying at the Royal Academy School of Art from 1813. As a painter, he exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts (showing 500 of 1790 characters).
