Harriet Cany Peale was the second wife of Rembrandt Peale. In 1840 he and Harriet married, and she also became his student and assistant. In that same year she began exhibiting her work in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Artists’ Fund Society, and continued to exhibit regularly throughout the rest of her life. She has been associated with the Hudson River School of painting, and is primarily known for landscapes, portraits, and still-life, as well as copies of her husband’s and other artist’s works. She frequently collaborated with Rembrandt Peale on copies of his famous “Porthole” painting of George Washington (Patriae Pater).

Father’s Return depicts a pleasant and sentimental genre scene of 19th-century domestic life.
