Peter Frederick (Born 1817) was an American painter who was born in Nescopeck, Pennsylvania. He loved art from a young age and could spend most of his free time drawing and sketching. This talent was noticed by many of his friends who encouraged him to pursue art as a career. However, in his common school education he studied surveying before he moved to Philadelphia where he became a sign painter at the age of 20. This provided him with the opportunity to do what he liked most, and after just two years he started to study art under the tutelage of John Rubens Smith and later under Bass Otis. What brought him to the limelight in art was a piece he painted that was titled De Soto discovering the Mississippi. The piece was sold to the Art Union. Fredrick has exhibited in several art shows and in galleries in the US. He served as the director of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and as the vice president of the Artists’ Fund Society. Fredrick liked subjects with bold contrasting values and those with interesting atmospheric qualities. That’s why most of his collectors and viewers often told him that his paintings reminded them of something from their past. Demand for framed Fredrick art grew as years went by and he won many awards in juried competitions. He showed his artwork at invitational exhibits, and taught watercolor workshops at Studio 14 Gallery in Tipp City, Ohio, and also taught weekly watercolor classes at the Rosewood Art Center in Kettering, Ohio.
