Charles Willson Peale was born on Kent Island, Maryland, in 1741 and was best known for his portrait paintings. In 1801, Peale led a mission to excavate two mastodon skeletons found in the Hudson River Valley of New York. Charles Willson Peale's mastodon was the first prehistoric animal skeleton ever assembled and exhibited in a museum. This painting, "Exhumation of the Mastodon," hangs next to a skeletal reproduction of one of Peale's mastodons, which measures 10 feet tall by 18 feet long.
