Hi bamamaninla-ga,

Thanks for your question.

You asked how to find the pirate paintings, but I assume that you'd
like the actual museums as well.

Biographical information, dealers, books, as well as museum
information can be found at AskArt.  I've listed the museum
information that I've found a bit further down, but you might wish to
visit the site itself.


Another site that listed some museums was:


The Brandywine River Museum is holding an exhibit on Pyle until
9/2/02.  Information and images can be found below:

Brandywine River Museum
U.S. Route 1 and PA Route 100
P.O. Box 141, Chadds Ford, PA 19317

Delaware Art Museum   
2301 Kentmere Parkway 
Wilmington , DE    19806   

This museum's site indicates it has 48 of Pyle's paintings

The National Museum of American Illustration   
Vernon Court
492 Bellevue Avenue 
Newport , RI    02840   

Other museums include (some of their sites are searchable--if they
were, I noted what they had; others are not and you may wish to
contact them):

Arizona State University Art Museum
Nelson Fine Arts Center 
Box 872911

The university has an archival collection of Pyle's works.

Free Library Of Philadelphia 
Rare Book Department   
1901 Vine Street 
Philadelphia , PA    19103-1189   

I would highly suggest contacting these museums ahead of time. They
may have sold, bought, or lent paintings and drawings.

Information about Pyle can also be found at these sites:

Howard Pyle Biography

Howard Pyle Biography

Beej's Pirate Images

"Museum Showcases the All-American Art of Illustration," by Michelle
LeBeau, Goleta Valley Voice

Search strategy:
AskArt and Artcyclopedia (was familiar with already)
Google search:
"Howard Pyle"
"Howard Pyle" pirates
"Howard Pyle" pirates museums
"Howard Pyle" exhibits

I hope this helps!
