Still Life from Natural Life

Paintings by the Howard Pyle Studio Group, on exhibit through May 29, 2024

Between 1883 and 1911, American illustrator Howard Pyle immersed himself in painting, writing and teaching within the light-filled studios at 1305 N. Franklin Street in Wilmington, DE. The Howard Pyle Studio Group, established in 1935 as a small collective of women artists dedicated to honoring his legacy, is privileged to own, use and maintain these historic buildings.

Continuing their artistic collaboration with the museum, Studio Group members explored the Public Engagement Division’s educational collection to gather specimens for creating still lifes. Working within the museum’s classroom, the artists brought to life four distinctive still lifes inspired by the fascinating natural specimens, each using diverse mediums and styles.

All artwork is available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the museum.
