Charles Willson Peale : art and selfhood in the early republic by David C Ward( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Son of a convicted felon whose early death left the family impoverished, Charles Willson Peale (1741-1827) went on to lead a staggeringly full and successful life. A portrait painter who produced an unparalleled body of work, including the iconic The Artist in His Museum, Peale was also a revolutionary soldier, a radical activist, an impresario of moving pictures, a natural historian, an inventor, and the proprietor of one of the first modern museums. His many other interests included a lifelong preoccupation with writing; in fact, his autobiography is one of the first examples of the genre in the United States. David C. Ward's book, with references to the history and culture of the time, is the first full critical biography of Peale
