Delaware Art Museum
Holding a collection of more than 12,000 works, the Delaware Art Museum was founded in 1912 by the Wilmington Society of Fine Arts in honour of the artist Howard Pyle, whose painting 'Battle of Bunker Hill' was in the museum's possession until it went missing and was presumed stolen in 2001. The museum is perhaps best known for its extensive collection of British Pre-Raphaelite art, works by Wilmington-native Howard Pyle and fellow American illustrators, while urban landscapes by John Sloan can also be viewed here. Public and group tours are available.
