The first extensive examination of the career and oeuvre of an American portraitist whose achievements have long been overshadowed by those of his renowned father Charles Willson Peale, this catalogue features an extensive biography of Rembrandt Peale that illuminates the cosmopolitan character of 19th-century American art through its detailed account of the artist's travels to London, Paris and Italy and his efforts to accommodate the changing tastes of his patrons and the public. Includes a critical discussion of the stylistic variety of Peale's work and numerous illustrations of his religious compositions, landscapes and portraits, among them his famous image Patriae Pater (George Washington, 1732-1799).
