The DuPont Powder Wagon Print — Howard Pyle
The Du Pont Powder Wagon is one of Howard Pyle’s last important paintings. The 1911 oil painting is a strong image with his trademark dramatic shadowing and historically accurate clothing.

In 1813, a wagon train under military escort carried Du Pont powder from Brandywine Mills near Wilmington, Del. to Commodore Perry at Erie, Pa. This was the powder with which Perry won his famous fight. Pyle’s scene depicts horse-drawn wagons marked "Dupont's Powder" leaving the Brandywine mills.
