The Cinema and Art film series presents “Howard Pyle & The Illustrated Story on Thursday, April 19, 2012, 6:30 pm at the INN at Canal Square in Lewes.
Howard Pyle, a Delaware treasure, was one of America’s most popular illustrators and storytellers at a time when top illustrators were celebrities. His images may be better known than his name. Enjoy this informative film to learn more about Howard Pyle, a Delaware treasure.
Howard Pyle and the Illustrated Story explores the history, artistry and spectacular rise of this amazing artist. The documentary reveals Howard Pyle’s (1853-1911) talents as prolific author, illustrator, and teacher. It shows how Pyle established a new standard of excellence in turn-of-the-century American graphic art. Interviews with artists Jamie Wyeth and Darrell Warren (“Pirates of the Caribbean”) uncover the many stylistic Pyle influences in painting, illustration, and modern cinema. [2011, US, Runtime: 46 mins, Not rated]
The film was written, directed and produced by Wilmington native, Paul Mento of Silver Hand Productions. Mento’s production studio is located three blocks from Pyle’s former studio. Take pleasure in the opportunity to meet and talk with another Delaware treasure, filmmaker Paul Mento, who will be present to share his filmmaking experiences.
