Jacob Bendien (1890–1933), was a Dutch painter and graphic artist.
He was born in Amsterdam but moved to Paris in 1911 where he met and worked with the sculptor-painter John Rädecker and the painter Jan van Deene. With them he later started making "Absolute schilderkunst", or "Absolute art", a form of abstract art that grew from their combined Amsterdam art show for the "De Onafhankelijken" (the Amsterdam "Independents" art club) in 1913.
He died in Hilversum of tuberculosis.
