Willem Coenraad Beuning was born on 17-6-1914 in Amsterdam and died on 24-12-1986 in Leidschendam. He was educated at the Royal Academy of Art (MO drawing) in The Hague. Made study trips to France, Spain and Norway, among others.
From the 1950s to the 1970s, the Hague artist Wim Beuning was known as a painter, graphic artist, draftsman and watercolorist. His drawings and beautiful graphic work were praised by art critics such as Jos de Gruyter. Beuning regularly exhibited at the Haagse Kunststichting, but also at the Gemeentemuseum and the Stedelijk Museum. He was a valued member of the Hague artists' association Pulchri Studio, Haagse Aquarellisten and 'De Grafische'. He also taught at the Hague Academy. Generations of students remember him as an exceptionally skilled teacher. It is less known that Beuning was also a theosophist and freemason. He was therefore very reserved about the influence that his philosophy of life had on his work. Beuning won prizes from the Jacob Maris Foundation, Stadhuisprijs 's Gravenhage 1953; the main prize of Concours Internationale du Dessin World Exhibition Paris 1937.
Beuning was a member of the Nieuwe Ploeg from Voorburg. Mentioned in the Scheen 1969-1970 .
