William Merritt Chase
American, 1849–1916
Follow

American Impressionist William Merritt Chase declined to take on his father’s shoe business with the explanation that “the desire to draw was born in me.” He trained first with Barton S. Hays in Indianapolis before studying abroad at the Royal Academy in Munich, where he met his future friends and travel companions Frank Duveneck and John Twachtman. Though he was first recognized for his still lifes, Chase painted a range of subjects including landscapes, cityscapes, studio interiors, and portraits in both oil and pastel. His wife and his children were frequently featured in his works. Chase’s style found affinity in the French Impressionists’ brushwork and treatment of light. He became a late member of “the Ten American Painters” and opened the Chase School of Art, which would later be renamed the Parsons New School for Design.
