Plaque Text

This noted Canadian artist was born in this city and about 1875 had a studio on Richmond Street in the marble works operated by his father. After studying in Philadelphia and at the Royal Academy Schools, London, England, he moved to Paris in 1887 where he worked under such prominent painters as Gérôme, Boulanger and Constant. Peel is represented in the National Gallery of Canada by "Mother Love", "A Venetian Bather" and other canvases. Examples of his work are also to be found in the civic galleries of London, Toronto, Vancouver and in other public and private collections. After a short but brilliant career, Peel died in Paris in 1892.
