Biography  
James Benade


James Benade was born in Lititz, PA during the early 1820's. He was the son of a Moravian Bishop of Bethlehem, and was known for his charismatic yet somewhat exaggerated mannerisms. He studied in Philadelphia, and also with Grunewald in Bethlehem. Benade soon became noted for his fine landscapes paintings and portraits and is considered the first significant artist of the Reading, Berks County area. He was a protege of F. D. Devlan, and like Devlan, never reached his peak of notoriety due to an early death. For more information, please see Artists of Berks County: An Overview 1850-1920.
