Tony Bennett the Artist

Tony Bennett tours the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Tony Bennett is one of America’s most accomplished and beloved musical icons. He’s made history with hit songs like Rags to Riches, Steppin’ Out With My Baby, For Once In My Life and so many more. But did you know that he’s also a serious painter with a love and thoughtful appreciation for art history?

Inspired by artists like Rembrandt, Velázquez and Rodin, he knew from a very young age that singing would not be his only lot in life. “I’ve always known what I wanted to do in life,” Tony says. “I love to paint and I love to sing and it’s a complete study to me…it’s a matter of learning and the more you learn the better it gets.”

Also known by his artistic name, Benedetto, his passion for fine art makes him a frequent visitor to museums and galleries all over the world. My Generation joined Tony as he toured New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, where he shared his knowledge and thoughts on several works.
