Brandywine School

Brandywine School

The Brandywine School was a style of illustration and an artists colony in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, near Brandywine Creek, founded by artist Howard Pyle (1853-1911) at the turn of the last century [ [ A Summer Idyll: Landscapes from the Brandywine Valley] ] . The works produced there were widely published in adventure novels, magazines and romances in the early 20th Century.


Pyle brought his proteges to Chadds Ford for summers of study between 1898 and 1902. It was through the absorption of Pyle's particular style and teaching during these five years that the tradition and center known as the "Brandywine School" emerged. The term since has been applied to more of Pyle's students and their followers, whether or not they worked at Chadds Ford. Pyle was mentor to such successful artists as N. C. Wyeth, Frank E. Schoonover, Stanley M. Arthurs, W.J. Aylward, Thornton Oakley, Violet Oakley, and Harvey Dunn.
