Description

    American Painter Rembrandt Peale Autograph Letter Signed, one page, 5" x 7.75", n.p., May 15, 1857, to a Mr. Durand. The letter reads: "After you left me this morning it occurred to me that possibly in your next number you would give a few words on the Exhibition here - In this case you might say that it contained nothing from my pencil, & that I preferred to send a portrait, my last work in my 80th Year, to the New York Academy. If amiss - excuse me. / Which I have done - That of a Young Man." Lightly toned, excellent condition.
    Rembrandt Peale (1778-1860) was the son of 18th century American painter Charles Wilson Peale and became a celebrated artist in his own right. This fine letter was likely written to Asher B. Durand, one of the founders of the popular Hudson River School of landscape painting. Ex. Henry E. Luhrs Collection.
