Description

A giant in the field of illustration and children's books, Howard Pyle (1853-1911) published some 3,300 illustrations during his thirty-five-year career. He also wrote many of the stories he illustrated and, as a teacher, shared his artistic views and skills with such students as Maxfield Parrish and N. C. Wyeth, who, along with many others, went on to become celebrated artists in their own right.)
This volume contains more than sixty of Pyle's best works. Characterized by an imaginative and colorfulrealism, his art dramatized themes with universal appeal: the romantic nature of medieval chivalry, the ruthlessness of pirate greed, and the pride of embattled soldiers. Selected from beloved classics and hidden gems and amassed over years of research by an expert in the field, these richly colored drawings will delight a wide audience of art lovers and book collectors.
