Rembrandt was the second son of Charles Willson Peale. He was born in Bucks County and spent much of his career in Philadelphia. He is best known for the portrait of George Washington he painted as a teenager working alongside his father who was completing a commissioned portrait of the first President. In 1814, Rembrandt opened the first museum in North America designed specifically to exhibit art, known as "Peale's Baltimore Museum and Gallery of Fine Arts.” He painted this relatively informal, intimate self-portrait for his niece and art pupil, Mary, daughter of his brother and fellow-painter Rubens Peale.
