Raphaelle Peale, son of pioneering American artist Charles Wilson Peale and America’s first great still life painter, serves up a trompe l’oeil of a woman behind a cloth — a tour de force drapery study and a comment on the repressive standards applied to figure drawing and painting in U.S. art schools at the time.
