- Author BiographyHoward Pyle (18531911), one of America s great illustrators, founded the hugely influential Brandywine School of illustration and was mentor to N.C. Wyeth, among many others. No less a talent with prose than with ink and paint, Pyle first gained national renown for his magazine drawings, and then for his literature, in particular for the many children s stories and serialized novels he wrote for a variety of major publications, including St. Nicholas Magazine, Harper s Young People, and Scribner s. His accompanying illustrations ranged from realistic engravings for medieval sagas ( Otto of the Silver Hand and Men of Iron ) to his distinctive and decorative woodcut-style drawings and lettering for classic folk tales ( The Story of King Arthur and His Knights and The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood ). Katharine Pyle (18631938)like her brother a talented writer and artistwas often his collaborator in publishing beautiful books.
