About the Author
Howard Pyle was born on March 5, 1853 in Wilmington, Delaware. In 1894, he taught art at the Drexel Institute and in 1900 founded the Howard Pyle School of Illustration Art. Although he did not actually create the legends of the characters, nor have much regard for historical accuracy, he did write and illustrate stories about pirates, King Arthur and of course, “The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood.” Vincent Van Gogh was a fan of Pyle’s. Howard traveled to Italy to study mural painting in 1910 and died on November 9, 1911 in Florence of a kidney infection. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
