Ben Turner (1912 - 1966)

by Robert Parsons

and Ashley Rolshoven

Ben Turner studied under the great Taos Master Ernest Blumenschein.

Ben Turner, whose ancestor was the painter Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851), was born in 1912 in Gallup, New Mexico.

He demonstrated artistic talent as a youth and went on to study at the University of New Mexico and the Art Institute of Chicago.

His works included the comics "Jerry n Jake" which were featured in more than 48 southwestern newspapers.

He worked as a staff artist for the Air Corps in World War II

and his depictions of the battles in Bari, Italy and the Ploesti Fields of Romania

were shown in Life and Look magazines, where he was a featured artist.

He studied in Taos under Eanger Couse, Ernest Blumenschein, Victor Higgins and Joseph Henry Sharp.

He created many beautiful peaceful oil paint landscapes depicting aspens, cottonwoods and adobes.

He worked from his studios in Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico; Redstone, Colorado; and Mazatlan, Mexico.

He died at Mazatlan on February 3, 1966.
