Rembrandt Peale was a writer and a portraitist of prominent figures in Europe and post-revolution America. He was one of painter Charles Willson Peale’s 17 children, all of whom were named for famous artists and scientists, and one of a few who fulfilled his namesake. (His brother Raphaelle was a painter of still lifes.) Peale first studied portraiture with his father and continued to study abroad, becoming influenced by the French Neoclassicists, particularly Jacques-Louis David. His more famous portrait subjects include Thomas Jefferson and George Washington; he was also offered a post as a painter for Napoleon. Later in his career, Peale expanded his practice to include landscapes and history paintings. Over the course of his 70-year career, he would produce over 1,000 works.
