Plaque Text

Born in London, Ontario, Peel became one of the most prominent Canadian painters of the French academic school of painting and among the first to gain an international reputation. He studied art in Philadelphia, London, England, and Paris where he was influenced by the current European fashion for polished brush technique and subjects taken from everyday life. In 1890 his most famous painting, "After The Bath", was awarded a medal at the Paris Salon. He returned to Canada twice to exhibit his work and was elected a fellow of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 1890.
