SC Hammond-Harwood House app is your tool for exploring the impressive array of portraiture at the house portrait collection in super high resolution. Of special interest are the many images by portrait painter Charles Willson Peale. Peale’s sensitive touch, delicate brush strokes, and knack for capturing the essence of the sitter made him one of the 18th century’s premier painters.
