Charles Willson Peale had always intended to practice a craft. So he tried in the North America of the 18th century, for example, in the manufacture of saddles and the repair of watches. But he did not care. When he started painting, he had understood it as a mere craft, and he wanted to try his third attempt. However, it soon turned out that Charles Willson Peale had a natural talent for portraits. It was more than pure craft to draw famous personalities. He expressed his artistic sensitivity. His early days he first spent as an apprentice with John Singleton-Copley . There he learned the basic techniques with which he would later give the persons whom he would portray their most authentic, and majestically dignified appearance.

The turbulent time of the American Revolution of the eighteenth century, which Charles Willson Peale followed with great interest, helped him to a series of meetings and meetings with famous generals, politicians, and future presidents of the United States. But before he immortalized greats such as Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin in paintings for future generations in the 1770s, he went to England to study under Benjamin West. From him Peale was very impressed, because he had taught himself the painting completely. His creativity had made Benjamin West one of the first American painters to make a name for himself in England. West thought portraying was about expressing human beauty fully in the painting. How he was able to develop his raw talent to meet this high standard, Peale moved to study under West.

To represent the grace of true greatness, Peal was probably best with his still famous portrait of George Washington. In later years he moved to Philadelphia after a fulfilling career as a portrait painter, where he acquired a piece of land. He baptized it Belfield Estate. There he devoted himself to landscape painting at the end of his creative career. The house on it is now known as Charles Willson Peale House and belongs in the US to the National Historic Landmarks. © Meisterdrucke
