The National Gallery of Art Collection

Important Information Inside: John F. Petro (#122)

Explores Peto's art in the context of his native Philadelphia and The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where he trained. Live footage shows the artist's home and studio in Island Heights, New Jersey. Peto's studio is much the same today as during the artist's life; it expresses the artist's temperament in its design and in his collections of objects--the very forms found in his paintings.
