Marooned, by Howard Pyle

Here is another important painting by Howard Pyle. It is quite large (40 in. x 60 in.). Like many works by Pyle, it resides in the collection of the Delaware Art Museum. There is a good writeup on their website.

The oil painting was finished in 1909 and was never published; however, the painting is based on an image done by Pyle for Buccaneers And Marooners of the Spainish Main, which appeared in Harper's New Monthly Magazine in September of 1887. This is the image (from Wikimedia Commons).
