Benoni Irwin

Benoni Irwin (June 29, 1840 – August 26, 1896) was an American portraitist.

A pupil of the National Academy of Design in New York City, USA, he trained in Paris bearing in mind the well-known French portraitist Emile Auguste Carolus-Duran (1838–1917). His sham was shown in the Exposition Universelle at Paris in 1889, and the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. Irwin had studios in San Francisco, Boston, New Bedford, and New York.
