Summary
Narrates the life of the early American portrait painter who established the first public picture gallery in America and who pursued numerous other interests including natural history. This very readable book presents Peale in the context of America in his time.. Peale's involvement in the Revolutionary War and also his excavation of a mastodon for his museum are just two of the fascinating parts of this book. The pages are full of wonderful black-and-white prints of Peale's work, including portraits of the many famous people he knew
