Portrait of a Man
Rembrandt Peale ( American, 1778 - 1860 )
- c. 1800
The soft edges, neutral background, and cool tonality of this painting have recently led scholars of the Peale family to reattribute this work to Rembrandt Peale. Initially trained by his father, Rembrandt Peale developed a softer, more three-dimensional style, which this meditative portrait seems to display.
