Rediscovering Delaware Artist Stanley Arthurs


Date & Time: Saturday - April 29, 2017 - 10:30 AM

Location: 121 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. - Dover, Delaware 19904

Presented by James C. Thompson

This program will focus on the contributions made to the art of illustration by Stanley Arthurs, one of Howard Pyle’s most able protégés. In the nearly eight decades since his death, Arthurs has drifted out of the public memory. The presenter will discuss Arthurs’ life and resurrect the artist to his rightful place by discussing the scope of his career and his connection to Howard Pyle. The backdrop for his comments will be one of Stanley Arthurs’ most memorable works, The First Day of Peace, which Arthurs painted in 1923 and is on display at the Delaware Public Archives.
