BENEDICT, MOSES:

German banker and artist; born in 1772 at Stuttgart, Germany; died there July 8, 1852. He was destined for the profession of sculptor. With his brother Seligmann Löb he was sent in 1785 to the Karlsschule in Stuttgart. Later on the two conducted the banking business of Benedict Brothers. Moses showed considerable talent for art, and as a painter of miniatures was particularly clever. He was an intimate friend of the painter Christian Gottlieb Schick, with whom he corresponded for years.
