Mary Jane Peale was the daughter of Rubens Peale and the niece of Sarah Miriam and Anna Claypoole Peale. She inherited the family talent and encouraged her father to take up painting late in his life...She painted a number of portraits, often of family members, including her father. These two portraits, both dated 1858, are also of family members, in this case her niece and nephew, Clara Elizabeth Peale (born 1851) and Albert Charles Peale (1849-1914). Both are inscribed “Riverside”on the reverse. They are the children of her brother Charles Willson Peale.
