Ford presents “Howard
Pyle and the American
Renaissance,” March 17-May
20. The American Renaissance was an important ideological and aesthetic trend in
the late 19th century that
influenced the illustrative
work of Pyle. Believing that
illustration was a springboard for painting and a
means for cultivating public
taste, Pyle created many classically inspired works for publication in popular magazines
and books. This exhibition
features approximately 40
works by Pyle as well as by artists that influenced Pyle’s style
and artists that shared his ideals. brandywinemuseum.org
