Artful Insight on Rembrandt Peale

Discuss the oldest painting in the Collection during our next Artful Insight.  Rembrandt Peale painted Porthole Portrait of George Washington in 1823. Portraiture was the first art form to reach the New World and played an important role in forming a national identity and advancing Westward progress.  During the talk visitors will also have the opportunity to examine early portraits of American Indians by Charles Bird King and Henry Inman.
