This has the best exhibition of both in the country Pyle being a native son of Wilmington and other illustrators as well. Didn't realize that I knew Pyle's work until I cam across the pirate piece "Marooned" which I realized had been used in a...More

This art museum does a great job of both blending in (it's situated in an amazingly beautiful residential neighborhood) and standing out (largest collection of pre-raphaelite art outside of europe, as well as revolving, thoughtful exhibits). There's also a lovely outside sculpture garden. Lot's of...More

The galleries are very well installed with ample lighting and space between the pieces of art. An extra treat is the outdoor sculpture exhibit. The museum is larger than I expected but not overwhelming. The docents are friendly and knowledgeable.

I recently visited the Delaware Art Museum on a Smithsonian Associates trip and was quite impressed by the diversity of art and really enjoyed the galleries devoted to Howard Pyle, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the magazine covers. We saw the current exhibit, "Eye on Nature"...More
