The Benton-Getty Art Dynasty

I will be sending Governor Gavin Newsom a Cultural Package informing him how to FIGHT the Fake Small Government Governor of Florida. Desantos is merging as the leader of – OTHER GOVERNMENT – that has a manufactured culture bent on overthrowing our traditional culture.

Gavin Newsom For The Arts

Posted on May 12, 2021 by Royal Rosamond Press

On cue, Governor Gavin Newsom held a press conference and announced massive aide for the Homeless and The Arts. I had just sent my business proposal to the City Government of Belmont, who have no Arts Program that I am aware of. I had talked with a friend about getting Grace Slick to do paintings in Charlatan Square as part of my Cultural Package for the Belmont that needs to get the Governor’s attention, being, I am kin to Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, as is Belmont Pioneer, Carl Janke. Michael Wilding married Aileen Getty, and thus Carl Janke is in the Getty Family Tree. This Getty Tree For The Arts adopted Gavin when he was a teenager. The J. Paul Getty father and son moved to England. Junior was Knighted by the Queen and was titled “Sir” after he became a British subject. Liz Taylor was Knighted by the Queen for her contribution to the Film Industry that made California great.

I have taken steps to be awarded several grants. A year from now, I hope to have my own room at the Getty Villa where I am allowed to roam freely admiring the art of my ex-brother-in-law, Garth Benton, and working on my paper and historic masterpiece………..

‘The Doomsday Prophecies of Wealthy Men’

I will be wearing the best headset money can buy with a endless soundtrack from the DaVinci Code, the Phantom of the Opera, and the best of Leonard Cohen. Young scholars will turn their heads as I pass them in halls.

“May the force be with you Professor Obi-Wan Kenobi!”

“Have you saved our planet yet, Obi-Wan?”

“He can’t hear you. He lives in his own world.”

I have also taken steps to receive a grant from the Paul Mellon foundation. Paul is in my rosy family tree via Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, and Warner.  I introduced the Pre-Raphaelites to Christine Rosamond Benton. We are ‘The Last Pre-Raphaelites’.

I just made an offer to be Drew Benton’s Mentor. I can show her how to be a scholar in a year. Above is her mother at the Getty Mansion in New York.

Rose City Planners

On this day, August 30, 2018, I found, Rose City Planners, a International Company that will pull together the best team of City Planners – possible! During the Great Depression many artists were funded by the WPA to produce civic works of art. Today, our cities have been forever enriched by the work of these magnificent artists who were not out to become famous. They gave way more that they received. Their historic contributions can be added on to, if their common philosophy is understood – and harnessed!  These men considered themselves Bohemians.

Many city planners and city governments understand that We The People want our downtowns to have a Bohemian flavor and look. This is the recipe that attracts people. Unfortunately, many city governments are hiring outsiders, Bohemian pretenders, who put the Capitalist Quick Buck Masters at the top, and the artist down at the bottom next to Vegetable Stands. These frauds keep saying they are protecting our city history and founding fathers, but – they lie! When my company gets off the ground we will do a through research to see how much history, and Bohemian Culture was bulldozed into the ground. Much can still be saved – if you know how!

Rose City Planners will reach out to foreign cities, and establish a Cultural Exchange. I am looking for Japanese Investors, and backers for ‘The Royal Janitor’. I founded ‘The Wandering Star Studios. I am poised to take over the work of J.R. Tolkien, also. I will relocate my company to Portland Oregon.

Building The City Beautiful

Posted on June 30, 2013by Royal Rosamond Press


On the my last day in Vancouver I heard there is a plan to tear down the last freeway in that city. Here is a video of the Hippie Museum that shows some Hippie fashions:

Here is another blog of mine where I honor Boho fashion.

Here is the statue Pacifica being blown-up by the Navy:

Ina Coolbrith gave Joaquin Miller his look that he took to England where he read his poems to the Queen. The Pre-Raphaelite Artists took him in. Miller was a friend of my grandmother. The original hippies of the Bay Area were influence by Miller, Ina, London, and Sterling. Miller made a life-size statue of my kin, John Fremont, who looks west from the heights of Oakland. El Capitan looks like Gandalf.

Peter photographed my kindred, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor for LIFE magazine, and Errol Flynn. who my mother and aunt dated. Ralph was good friends Diego Rivera and his artistic wife. These creative Bohemian souls were the compatriots of David Weston and his Muses. Ralph did a painting of Tina Modotti wearing pearls. David is the model for Frank Rosefish. Errol Flynn is a model for Don Roscoe.

The Roaring Tigers of Art and Literature

Thomas Hart Benton did lithographs and a painting for John Steinbeck’s ‘Grapes of Wrath’. This is huge! This puts a Literary Giant in the Benton Family Creative Tree. How could the three Rosamond biographers have missed this? Here’s a huge clue?

I am overwhelmed by the History I appear to be the Caretaker of. For this reason I am founding Royal Rosamond College, and am seeking funding.

There are two world famous artists with the last name BENTON. Thomas Hart Benton, and Christine Rosamond Benton. Not one of the three authors that were blessed by attorney Sydney Morris to publish Rosamond’s biography, put these two artists together in their lying biographies that humiliated Christine, her mothers, and her teacher.


Above is a photograph of a man humiliating one of Thomas’ works of art. People all over the world express their outrage. Wait till they read about Faulkner’s ‘Dunkin The Frog’ that was going to put into the public domain as a Rosamond. Not only is this Art Forgery, it is a direct attack on the Creative Language that Artists speak to each other with – for free!

In two of the three works of art above, we see artists who were members of the Synchromism movement. Stanton Macdonald-Wright did ‘Yin Synchrom’ in 1925, and Thomas Hart Benton did ‘The Rape of Persephone’ in 1939. Is Benton sending a message to Stanton, saying he is beholding to his influence, or, did it just turn out this way in what Carl Jung titled synchronicity? Stanton included Gloria Stuart in one of his murals. Is Stuart’s painting of a nude – with tiger – part of this messaging? Is she saying;

“Don’t leave me out, don’t forget about me – you Bohemian good ol boys!”

The Getty Bond-John Line

Posted on November 12, 2021 by Royal Rosamond Press

Michael Wilding wanted to be an artist when he was a teenager – and became one! Did his wife, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, see her husband’s artwork – and watch him paint? Was Liz reminded of the artist Augustus John, whose house she grew up in? Did she consider promoting her husband’s art like her father and uncle promoted John? Did she see the Getty family promoting the artistic legacy of Christopher Wilding when he became engaged to Aileen Getty? Was Liz and Aileen aware they were kin to Ian Fleming via Talitha Pol who married the Anglophile, John Paul Getty 11, the father-in-law of Christopher? Liz married the son of Conrad Hilton who was married to Zsa Zsa Gabor – who dated J. Paul Getty. Did they talk about being married? Gabor married a prince who ran against Meg Whitman for Governor of California. Did Christopher Wilding meet Gavin Newsom, who is the partner of the Pelosi family in Plumpjack? His mother married Jack Werner.

My late sister, the world famous artist Christine Rosamond Benton, was introduced to Garth Benton, by his friend, Lawrence Chazen, who was our father’s private lender. Vic Presco told Larry his daughter was famous, and he talked about the Benton murals. My sister’s and out father formed a family partnership with the legacy of Vic’s mother who wanted to leave to all six members of my natal family. Vic was surprised when I told him Chazen had formed a partnership in the first Rosamond gallery. Why didn’t Chazen tell Vic? Vic was not happy to learn Larry was the number one creditor in the Probate. Vic dies not knowing Liz was our kin – and Ian Fleming!

With the discovery there is the Welch name John in the genealogy of Samantha Bond, who played Moneypenny, and Rosamund on Downton Abby, and learning Wilding starred in a movie about the Women’s Royal Naval Service, then it appears the limited horizon of these BONDED families has been greatly expanded – by me! I can see – for miles! Time to entrust these collected visions under the banner of Royal Rosamond Press, that has been publishing installment of my Bond book ‘The Royal Janitor’.

Above is the mural Garth Benton rendered for Anne and Gordon Getty. Will an agent come forth and represent my Mystery Muse, who wearing a Cameo, will make a unforgettable extra in a period production, such as Downton Abby. She is British. I can see her in a Naval uniform.

The Taylor, Getty, and Rosamond Children | Rosamond Press

After his wife’s death in 1907, Augustus John’s mistress Dorothy “Dorelia” McNeill, a Bohemian style icon, became his partner; they lived together most of the time from 1904 until his death and had two children, but never married.

  1. Poppet John (1912–1997), John’s daughter by Dorothy, married the Dutch painter Willem Jilts Pol (1905–1988).
  2. Vivien John (1915–1994) was a notable painter.

Willem Pol’s daughter was

  1. Talitha Pol (1940–1971) by an earlier marriage to Arnoldine Adriana “Adine” Mees (1908–1948). (Thus, Talitha was step-granddaughter of both Augustus and Dorothy). Talitha was a fashion icon of 1960s London, who married billionaire oil heir, John Paul Getty Jr.

Here’s a fuller look at the Getty family tree as it is known to the public today:

JEAN PAUL GETTY had five children

  • George Getty II had one child
    • Anne Catherine Getty Earhart had one child
      • Sara Earhart
  • Jean Ronald Getty had four children
    • Christopher Ronald Getty had three children
      • Isabel Getty
      • Robert Maximilian Getty
      • Conrad Getty
    • Stephanie Marie Getty-Waibel had three children
      • Marietherese Waibel
      • Robert Maximilian Getty
      • Sigourney Waibel
      • Vanesa Waibel
    • Cecile Karin Margarita Getty
    • Christina Therese Getty
  • John Paul Getty II had five children
    • John Paul Getty III had two children
      • Anna Getty
      • Balthazar Getty had four children
        • Cassius Paul Getty
        • Grace Getty
        • Violet Getty
        • June Catherine Getty
    • Aileen Getty had two children
      • Caleb Wilding
      • Andrew Wilding
    • Mark Getty had three children
      • Alexander Getty
      • Joseph Getty
      • Julius Getty
    • Adriadne Getty had two children
      • Natalia Williams
      • August Williams
    • Adriadne Getty had two children
  • Gordon Getty had seven children
    • Gordon Peter Getty
    • Andrew Rork Getty
    • John Gilbert Getty had one child
      • Ivy Getty
    • William Paul Getty
    • Nicolette Getty
    • Kendalle Getty
    • Alexandra Getty
  • Timothy Ware Getty

It was a match made in Hollywood: Elizabeth Taylor’s son and oil tycoon J. Paul Getty’s granddaughter. But the script had a peculiar twist—Christopher Wilding, 25, Liz’s offspring by her late second husband, Michael Wilding, could only plight his troth to Aileen Getty, 20, under a full moon and over salami and crackers at a cocktail party. There won’t be a wedding for three years because her grandfather’s will stipulates that Aileen will be disinherited (and lose $100,000 annually) if she marries before she is 23.
No matter, Elizabeth clearly dotes on the couple. Leaving her husband, Sen. John Warner, in Washington, she sallied West and rallied old friends. Martin Mull, Sissy Spacek, Roddy McDowell, Carol Burnett and Dudley Moore were among the 150 guests at a formal engagement party held at the Brentwood home of Aileen’s divorced mother, Gail Harris Getty. Timothy Leary showed up, as did Taylor’s mother, Sara, 89, and Aileen’s two brothers—J. Paul III, who lost an ear to Italian kidnappers in 1973, and Mark, in from his British prep school, Harrow.
