James Peale learned the art of painting from his elder brother Charles Willson Peale (1741-1827), for whom he worked as a studio assistant and eventually became a professional partner. James Peale was best known for his portrait miniatures, a specialty that his brother assigned to him in 1786. He fought with the Maryland brigade of the Continental Army during the American Revolution, attaining the rank of captain before returning to civilian life in 1779. In addition to miniatures, Peale also produced history, landscape, still life subjects, and full-size portraits.
