"Ben Schonzeit is a prolific artist who embraces imagination as opposed to observation; the invented rather than the depicted. Schonzeit is concerned with narrative color, abstraction, intellectual experience, drama and beauty."

"Schonzeit was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1942. He is a graduate of The Cooper Union. He has exhibited widely both here and abroad since 1969. His paintings, drawings, and photographs are included in the collections of many important museums around the world including The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, The Basel Kunstmuseum, The Denver Art Museum, and The Brooklyn Museum."

I have a law degree (Stanford, 66') but have never practiced. Instead, from 1967 through 1977, I tried to contribute to the revolution in America. As unsuccessful as everyone else over that decade, in 1978 I went to work for the U.S. Forest (more...)
