I hope you haven't been bored with all the attention paid to Howard Pyle. He was not only one of the very best illustrators of all time but he generously shared his talent and knowledge with his younger peers. Nobody has ever done for his fellow man what this giant did in his lifetime.
The greatest testament to Howard Pyle is the roster of brilliant talent that follows, and they comprise but a partial list of those who were fortunate enough to attend his classes or work in his studio.
C.W. (Clifford Warren) Ashley, 1881-1947. The Christmas Exile, from Scribner's Monthly Magazine for December 1909.
W.J. (William James) Aylward, 1875-1956. The Waterside Life at Mystic (CT). An illustration for The Nutmeg Coast, from Harper's Monthly Magazine for September 1916.
Anna Whelan Betts, dates unknown. Nelly Custis in the Mount Vernon Garden, from The Century Magazine for May 1906.
Harvey Dunn, 1884-1952. Something for Supper, 1943. A painting in the collection of the
South Dakota Art Museum.
Elizabeth Shippen Green, 1871-1954. Jehane, the Constant Lover, from "The Navarrese," by James Branch Cabell, Harper's Monthly Magazine for September 1907. Shippen Green was one of the best and the most prolific of Pyle's students. (She had also studied with the noted painter Thomas Eakins.) This is not typical of her magazine work which was largely illustrations of children. However, it is one of my favorites.

Illustrations don't get better than this. Despite the crude color separations and printing it's still a dazzling portrait. Another lovely portrait.
