More information

Pyle was interested in drawing and writing from a very young age. He was an indifferent student, but his parents—particularly his mother—encouraged him to study art. For three years he studied at the studio of F. A. Van der Weilen in Philadelphia. Aside from a few lessons at the Art Students League of New York, this constituted the whole of his artistic training.



In 1876 he visited the island of Chincoteague. Inspired by what he saw, he wrote and illustrated an article about the island and submitted it to Scribner's Monthly. One of the magazine's owners, Roswell Smith, encouraged him to move to New York and pursue illustration professionally. Pyle initially struggled in New York; his lack of professional experience made it difficult for him to translate his ideas into publishable form. He received encouragement from several working artists, including Edwin Austin Abbey, A. B. Frost and Frederick S. Church. He finally published a double-page spread in the Harper's Weekly issue of March 9, 1878, and was paid $75—five times what he had expected. Thereafter he was increasingly successful, and by the time he returned to Wilmington in 1880 he was an established artist.
