The Delaware Art Museum’s permanent attractions are full of an array of artists and styles. Two of the heaviest concentrations are in British Pre-Raphaelite art and American art.
British Pre-Raphaelites is a form of artwork that rejected the art trends that were prominent in their time. Instead of creating modern art from their time, these artists would take inspiration from Middle Age art.
Howard Pyle exhibit features the breathtakingly beautiful pieces of art from Howard Pyle. Pyle had a strong reputation in the art community, and he was known as a renowned illustrator and storyteller. The New York Times even regarded Pyle as “the father of American magazine illustration as it is known to-day.”
American Illustration focuses on the work of Howard Pyle. Although it is concentrated on the illustrations that Pyle created, it also features many other renowned illustrators. Many of the featured illustrators were Pyle’s students.
