1. Portrait of Rosalba Peale (c.1820). Rembrandt Peale (American, 1778-1860). Oil on canvas. Smithsonian American Art Museum.

    Rembrandt Peale tutored his daughter Rosalba (1799-1874) in art and raised her as an independent and strong-minded woman. Although “Rosa” had many suitors, she refused to wed “the everyday man” and did not marry until she was sixty-two years old. In this portrait, made when she was in her early twenties, Rosalba’s pensive expression conveys the alert mind and thoughtful conversation that won the admiration of others.
