Bennet received his artistic education during a trip to Italy from 1829-to 1832, where he stayed in Rome and Naples. His closest contact in Rome was with the sculptors Bengt Erland Fogelberg and Bertel Thorvaldsen and the French painter Horace Vernet. After returning to Sweden, he divided his time between military service and art.
In 1838, after advancing to captain, he resigned from the military and conducted preparatory studies in the field of art in Sweden. He then mainly painted Italian landscape motifs, Stockholm views and views of larger mansions, portraits, animal pictures and cartoon architectural motifs.
Bennet is represented at Malmö Museum, Kalmar Art Museum, Nationalmuseum, Skokloster Castle, Lund University Art Museum, Stockholm Castle, Norrköping Art Museum, and Uppsala University Library.
