Titian Ramsay Peale was born into a career as an artist. His father, Charles Willson Peale, was a painter who produced the first portrait of General George Washington in 1772. Titian, Charles’s second son from his first marriage, also became a successful artist. Although Titian attended anatomy lectures at the University of Pennsylvania, much of his education was privately directed by his father, who allowed his children to study in the Philadelphia Museum, (then called Peale's Museum, located next to Independence Hall) which Charles organized and founded.
