Public Culture in the Early Republic: Peale’s Museum and Its Audience
David R. Brigham (au)
When Charles Willson Peale redesigned his personal painting gallery in 1786 to include a “repository for Natural Curiosities,” one of America’s first museums of art & science was born. Tracing the development of Peale’s Philadelphia Museum as an educational institution, as a business, & as a form of entertainment, Brigham shows how this “world in miniature” helped define the terms of participation in early national cultural institutions. Examines the museum’s place in early American cultural life from the perspective of patrons & donors & by analyzing Peale’s promotional efforts toward specific segments of the population.
