A few Still Lifes by Raphaelle Peale (American artist, 1774-1825)





Raphaelle Peale (American artist, 1774-1825) Melons and Morning Glories


Raphaelle Peale was America's first professional still-life painter.  His own father, Charles Willson Peale, & most theorists of the era believed that still life was a subject worthy only of amateurs. They considered portraiture to be more admirable. Raphaelle's defiant pursuit of still life resulted in some of the most beautiful American paintings of the nineteenth century.
