In his time he was as well known as
Norman Rockwell, N.C. Wyeth or Maxfield Parrish.
During the 1920s/1930s every publication sought
the look of "the American Girl," but Benda's beautiful
women were often exotic and mysterious, not
homespun pretty like the girls of Harrison
Fisher or Howard Chandler Christy.
