Ralph Eggleston and Peter de Sève Featured in “State of the Art: Illustration 100 Years After Howard Pyle”

Last week the Delaware Art Museum debuted an exhibition called “State of the Art: Illustration 100 Years After Howard Pyle.” It will be on view through June 1, 2013. The show is curated by David Apatoff, who takes a cross-disciplinary view of the evolution of American illustration through the lens of eight contemporary artists: Ralph Eggleston, Peter de Sève, Bernie Fuchs, Milton Glaser, Mort Drucker, Phil Hale, Sterling Hundley, and John Cuneo.

I love seeing animation artists included in the company of illustrators and designers like Fuchs and Glaser. The artwork for animated films, at its basic core, serves the same purpose as work created by these other artists in its need to communicate ideas to the audience through visual means.

For people who are unable to travel to Delaware to see the show, the museum has made the exhibition catalog viewable online.
