Born in Reading, this self-taught artist won international recognition for his paintings of barnyard and woodland creatures, still lifes, and landscapes. He was the creator of the famed Bon Ami chick. Ben Austrian had studios in Paris and Florida and at Mount Penn, but the place he loved most was "Clovelly-at-the-Pinnacle" nearby, where he died at the age of fifty-one. The artist is buried here.
