Other Notes: Mary Benjamin Rogers (1878-1956), Mrs. Benjamin Rogers, as she was known, was the first wife of Standard Oil heir Henry H. Rogers Jr., and mother of fashion icon Millicent Rogers.
She began painting in France under the watchful eye of Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940), and later studied with Jon Corbino (1905-1964), and friend Bernard Boutet de Monvel (1881-1949). Rogers's love of flowers is revealed in her paintings; the romantic ideal of the blossom creeps into almost all of her canvases. Her first exhibition was held in the 1930s in Paris at the amateur art show arranged by Miss Elsa Maxwell. She continued on to exhibit paintings into the late 1940s at various galleries and institutions including the Wildenstein Galleries in New York, San Francisco's de Young Museum, the Pasadena Art Institute, Southern Vermont Artists, as well as the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.
