Charles Wilson Peale, “The Artist in His Museum,” 1822 🎨 • A tour de force for any museum devotee! Charles Wilson Peale – founder of one of the first museums in America – painted this accomplished self portrait at the ripe old age of 81. Pictured holding open the curtain to his collection, Peale’s museum – then located on the second floor of Independence Hall in Philadelphia – proffered a virtual cabinet of curiosities to instruct and entertain its visitors. Cages in the background display natural history specimens, whilst in the foreground Peale entices his viewers in with a wild turkey and the skeleton of a mastodon he had exhumed himself (who could resist!). • Artist, soldier, scientist, inventor, politician and naturalist, Peale was also an absolute LEGEND at naming his children – most after his favorite artists. They included: Raphaelle, Rembrandt, Titian, Rubens and Angelica Kauffman Peale ( #DadGoals). • Now at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (@pafacademy) 🇺🇸 • • • #art #history #arthistory #artist #portrait #painting #salon #gallery #museum #artgallery #cabinet #cabinetofcuriosities #house #home #interior #interiordesign #historichouse #countryhouse #antique #design #style #curator #19thcentury #Federal #Regency #CharlesWilsonPeale #Philadelphia #IndependenceHall #PAFA
