"A masterly portrait, and an interpretive tour de force." - Charles C. Eldredge, author of Tales from the Easel "This is an invaluable critical study of Charles Willson Peale - clear, erudite, and imaginative. Ward shows what went wrong as well as right in Peale's lifelong attempts at self-fashioning, giving us a richer picture than ever before of this restless American figure." - Alexander Nemerov, author of The Body of Raphaelle Peale; "One of the hallmarks of public life after the Revolution was the desire of notable Americans to fashion their own enduring reputations. This exquisite book lucidly and compellingly investigates how Charles Willson Peale expressed and controlled his image. David C. Ward takes us on a remarkable journey through the labyrinth of a major artist's evolving self-consciousness during the early Republic." - Paul Staiti, Mount Holyoke College"
