Benton Francis Scott was born in West Hollywood, California. He was known for his post-impressionist and plein-aire paintings. He lived in Paris, France during the late-1940's and early 50's where he studied (and exhibited) at the Academie Julien and the Academie de la Chaumier-Montparnasse. The subject of much of his work, during this period, focused on very tranquil, yet "typical" elements of the Parisian urban landscape or cityscape.
