An American leader of Impressionist landscape painting, William Merritt Chase (1849 – 1916) was also a brilliant portrait and still-life artist. The leader of several artistic societies, he taught future icons Georgia O’Keefe, Edward Hopper and Rockwell Kent. Chase was a trendsetter who introduced European styles to American artists. A master of mimicking rich oil paints with pastels, he could expertly paint numerous subjects. Chase’s contemporary Impressionist works significantly impacted the acceptance of modern styles in late 19th-century America.
