BACHI, RAPHAEL:

Italian miniature-painter; lived at Paris in the middle of the eighteenth century. His name appears in the list of the Jews that resided in Paris during the reign of Louis XV., which was recently published by Paul d'Estrées. This list, drawn up by the police, mentions Bachi as a miniature painter of great talent ("peintre en miniature, de beaucoup de talent").
