"A soil scientist and a professor at the University of Wyoming, Vaughan sees a lot more soils than the average person, and certainly knows them more intimately. Over many years spent examining them, she has come to appreciate their natural beauty and immense variability. Two years ago, she began channeling that appreciation into a product she could share with the world, turning the soils she loved into watercolor pigments."

Born on this day in 1853, Howard Pyle was a native of Wilmington, Delaware, where he resided throughout his life, spending his last year in Florence Italy, where he died in 1911. He was one of the most popular illustrators and children’s book authors of his day and a teacher of great influence on a generation of illustrators. ⁣

As a young man he spent a period of study in Philadelphia before moving to New York, where he took classes at the Art Students League to strengthen his skills. Pyle truly launched his career in 1878 with the drawing, “Wreck in the Offing,” published by Harper’s Weekly. Returning to Wilmington soon after to establish a studio, his career flourished. ⁣

Pyle’s main achievements were his dynamic illustrations of scenes from American history, pirate lore and the middle ages, which he prepared for in-depth by consulting books on American history and history painting, pirate illustrations, wigs, costumes, and architecture. This thirst for historical accuracy, combined with a rich imagination, resulted in a celebrated and prolific career in which he produced numerous illustrated books, magazine pieces, published pictures and decorations. Pyle is perhaps best known for the children’s books that he wrote and illustrated, including “The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood” (1883); “Otto of the Silver Hand” (1888); “Jack Ballister’s Fortunes” (1895); and his own folktales, “Pepper & Salt” (1886); “The Wonder Clock” (1888), and “The Garden Behind the Moon” (1895). ⁣

As a teacher Pyle imparted in his students the importance of putting drama in the picture, making the viewer feel as if they were in the midst of the action. He advised his pupils to “throw your heart into the picture and then jump in after it.” His students and, subsequently, their students have come to be known as 'The Brandywine School.” Among Pyle’s many illustrious students were N. C. Wyeth, Frank Schoonover, Jessie Willcox Smith, Harvey Dunn, Violet Oakley, Ellen Bernard Thompson Pyle, and Elizabeth Shippen Green. Both the Delaware Art Museum and the Brandywine River Museum of Art contain large collections of Pyle’s work. ⁣
