Emmanuel Benner (born 28 March 1836 in Mulhouse, Haut-Rhin, † 24 September 1896 in Nantes, Loire-Atlantique) was a French painter.


Emmanuel Benner was a son of the painter and textile designer Jean Benner-Fries and also worked as the first as a textile designer in Mulhouse. He went - presumably along with his twin brother Jean Benner - to Paris to Jean Jacques Henner and Léon Bonnat educate.

At the end of the Franco-German War, Emmanuel Benner began to exhibit regularly at the Salon de Paris. His picture won Le repos in the Salon of 1879 the gold medal. In 1896 he was named Chevalier of the Legion of Honor.

Benner allegorical painting, genre scenes, portraits, landscapes, still life and - like his twin brother - a lot of female nudes. In addition, he created numerous watercolors and drawings on various subjects.

On the art market are now paying up to 62,000 U.S. dollars for his oil paintings. [1]
