Howard Pyle (1853-1911) has long been considered, “The Father of American Illustration.” He founded the first school in the nation for illustration at Drexel Institute in Philadelphia (1894-1900) and later the Howard Pyle School of Art in Wilmington, Delaware (1900-1905). The Delaware Museum of Art was founded to house his art. This scene of a young acrobat surrounded by his concerned companions is a good example of this great artist’s talent. A double sheet in good condition with the publisher’s center fold crease. This print is glued down. Published by Harper’s Weekly.
