A coach and sign painter and Congregationalist deacon, Peckham executed portraits with keen attention to detail. The interior settings are careful delineations of his subjects’ homes. Here, Anne Elizabeth Raymond (b. 1832) and Joseph Estabrook Raymond (b. 1834) are seen exquisitely dressed and surrounded by toys and possessions in the parlor of their family’s home in Royalston, Massachusetts.
