Harriett Cany Peale was the wife of Rembrandt Peale and an active member of the Peale family's Philadelphia artistic dynasty. She was born circa 1800 and wed Peale in 1840. During the mid-nineteenth century she exhibited her works, many of which were copies of her husband's original paintings, at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Art and the Artists' Fund Society. Peale painted still life, portraits, and domestic genre paintings.
