William Merritt Chase

William Merritt Chase William Merritt Chase (Nov.1,1849 - Oct 25,1916) was a great American artist. Chase was known as an advocate of Impressionism and an educator. It is because of him that the Chase School was established, which in time, would eventually become Parsons The New School for Design. William was born in Williamsburg, Indiana (presently Nineveh, Indiana). He showed a strong interest in art very early on and began studying at a young age.

After a short time in the Navy, Chase went to New York where he furthered his artistic training. Due to family misfortune, he was forced to leave
New York after about a year and head to St. Louis, Missouri. Here, in St. Louis, Chase became very involved in the art community. He won prizes for
his work and sparked the interest of many wealthy collectors. This led to Chase traveling to Europe where he would continue to paint and help collectors
acquire European art for their collections. In Europe, William settled at The Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. After a short visit to Italy, Chase
returned home to America where he represented the new wave of European-taught American talent.
Chase displayed a persona of multiple dimensions - a cultured cosmopolitan, a committed family man, and an admired teacher. Chase worked in all media,
although most fluent in oil painting and pastel. He is most known for his fascinating portraits. His subjects often included some of the most
important men and women of his time, along with his own family. He also has some beautiful figurative works. His Shinnecock pieces have become
favorites of art historians and are regarded as some of the finest examples of American Impressionism.
