Portrait of Rosalba Peale, Rembrandt Peale
As his father, Charles Wilson Peale, had done for him, Rembrandt Peale tutored his daughters in painting and the sciences.
Here, his affectionate portrait of Rosalba in her early twenties shows an alert, pensive young woman sitting for her portrait with patient equanimity.
Rembrandt Peale also painted later portrait of Rosalba with her sister, Eleanor.
