In Pursuit of Fame: Rembrandt Peale 1778-1860

November 6, 1992 – February 15, 1993

Museum: Portrait Gallery

Location: First Floor, Galleries 121 A & B

75 paintings, letters, and publications explore Peale's gift for using portraiture to express the social, philosophical, and political concerns of his time and how his work contributed to the nation's efforts to establish an American identity. A section of the exhibition has been hung to represent the interior of a 19th-century art gallery, such as one in Peale's Baltimore Museum.

Catalogue: $35.00 (paper)
