Coffeehouse & Canvas: Franklinís and Charles Willson Pealeís Botanical Turn

Judy Bullington explores how enlightenment ideals percolated through London’s coffeehouse culture


Benjamin Franklin and Charles Willson Peale shared the enlightenment view about how “useful knowledge” from observation and experimentation in the natural sciences was integral to self and social “improvement.” Judy Bullington explores how enlightenment ideals of this nature percolated through London’s coffeehouse culture, which Franklin famously frequented, to be captured by Peale on canvas.
