Born in San Francisco, Peixotto married fellow American painter Mary Glascock Hutchinson in 1897 and the couple took up a primary residence in Fontainebleau outside of Paris, France. He later taught at the Art Institue of Chicago where Thomas Hart Benton was his student, served as a captain in the Army Corps of Engineers, an official artist attached to the American expeditionary force, and President of the National Society of Mural Painters.
