Howard Pyles Studio

If you are visiting Wilmington, Delaware Pyle’s Franklin street studio is operated as a museum.

StudioFrontxcJust off the sidewalk on North Franklin Street, between Pennsylvania and Delaware Avenues, is the Howard Pyle Studio.   When Howard Pyle built it more than a century ago, the location was considered the outskirts of the city. Now, tucked amid tall trees and shrubbery away from the noise of today’s heavy traffic, it continues to serve its original purpose as a working studio and source of instruction for artists.

About Denis

A graduate of the University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art; I have been drawing and painting ever since I can remember. I have always been inspired by the art of Romantic painters such as Eugene Delacroix, John Constable and W.M. Turner. I consider myself a modern Romantic seeking to capture the emotion or feeling of a subject above all else. Charles Baudelaire described Romanticism as "...situated neither in choice of subject nor exact truth, but in the way of feeling".
