Captain Keitt, 1907 by Howard Pyle.

Pyle was better known as an illustrator and this comes from the Book of Pirates, which he also wrote.

Looks a little like Captain Jack Sparrow!

This is a wonderful, beautiful painting.

I know very little about Howard Pyle. He is a lot like my beloved N.C. Wyeth.

In fact, thanks to your entry, I'm going to buy "Howard Pyle: A Record of His Illustrations and Writings"

Thank you very much for your reminding me of something I don't have, but should

Shalom Martha,

I'm a sucker for all things Pirate.

The Clevenet system has five copies and one is even now making its way to my apartment. Thank you.

B'shalom,

Jeff
