Ben Austrian
Ben Austrian, Mt Penn Landscape
The artist’s success in the U.S. led him to Europe, where in the first decade of the 20th century, he had successful showings in Paris and London and had studios in both cities for a time, as well. His painting, “Golden Harvest,” was purchase by the Walker Museum of Art in Liverpool, England, further cementing his international renown. Austrian also did advertising artwork during his career. In fact, one of his best-known drawings can still be found on the shelves of modern supermarkets a century later: Austrian was the creator of the baby chick shown in advertisements and on containers of Bon-Ami scouring powder along with the slogan, “Hasn’t scratched yet.” Some early Bon-Ami advertising art also depicted a housewife; it was an image for which his wife, Mollie, served as the model. Austrian’s forties marked a growth period in his artistic style, which led him to doing tonal landscapes that met with much approval among collectors.
