Artist Biography

Hannah Brown Skeele, who also went by Harriet, is best known today for her elegant still-life paintings, but she also created detailed portraits and pictures of animals. Born in Maine, Skeele is presumed to be self-taught and likely studied the work of Sarah Miriam Peale. She found success in St. Louis where she lived from 1858 to 1871. She later returned to Maine where she painted portraits of prominent locals. Today, her works can be found in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Saint Louis Art Museum.
