Rembrandt Peale first painted Jefferson in 1800 (oil at Peabody Institute, Baltimore). In 1805 he and his father, Charles Willson Peale, went to Washington where Rembrandt painted portraits of national celebrities to hang in their Philadelphia museum. When the Peale Museum was dispersed in 1854 this portrait was purchased by the subject's namesake, Thomas Jefferson Bryan, and subsequently given by him to The New-York Historical Society.
