Anna Claypoole Peale (1791-1898)

Anna was a Philly girl and my favorite American miniature painter from the family of painters, the Peale's. She  sold her first paintings, copies of French landscapes, at the age of fourteen. She had her first major exhibition when she was just twenty and was in the first exhibition at PAFA where she continued to show for many years. Go girl. This portrait of  was complete in 2013. And is sold.
