      Enchanted Castles & Noble Knights
    • Friday, November 28, 2014
    • Unforgettable, iconic paintings and drawings that illustrate the romantic and daring stories of King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table, and other tales of quests and chivalry will be on view this holiday season. These legends were immensely popular in the late 19th century, and artists of America's Golden Age of Illustration (1880-1930) took up brush and pen to create art as dramatic as the stories. This exhibition will include a selection of Howard Pyle's intricate, compelling pen drawings depicting Arthurian legends, and N.C. Wyeth's gorgeously colored, romantic paintings for illustrated editions of "The Boy's King Arthur" and "The White Company," as well as work by Walter Crane, Elizabeth Shippen Green, Maxfield Parrish, Louis Rhead, Frank Schoonover and others.
