  M i William Merritt Chase was born on 1 Nov 1849 in IN. He died on 15 Oct 1916 in Brooklyn, Kings County, NY. He was buried on 18 Oct 1916 in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, Kings County, NY.

Praised by critics, admired by colleagues and respected by students,
this distinguished 19th-century artist produced paintings and pastels
of gentle beauty.
William Merritt Chase dominated the universe of American Art during
the late 19th century. He was one of the first artists to turn out
Impressionist landscapes in the United States, a portrait painter of
the first rank, a master of still life, a renowned teacher, a leader
of societies of artists, and a gifted connoisseur of European
painting. He also knew everyone who counted in American art.
Chase believed in theatrical self-promotion, and cultivated a
bohemian guise and public image of artful sophistication that won him
both publicity and patrons. It was his studio, however, that made him
a celebrity. Crammed full of objets d'art and exotic treasures --
Japanese fans, East Indian drums, paintings, tapestries, Phoenician
glass, ornate frames, a stuffed flamingo and 37 Russian samovars --
the spacious suite Chase rented at the Tenth Street Studio Building
in New York soon became the talk of the town. Illustrations of the
studio were featured in art magazines, and Henry Adams and other
novelists employed it as a setting for their fiction.
Chase had studied at the Royal Academy in Munich and adopted the
dark, lush colors and bold brushwork that characterized the
prevailing style there. In the late 1880s, however, he changed his
approach and turned to the brighter, lighter palette and shorter
brushstrokes of the French Impressionists. He also took his canvases
and easel out-of-doors to directly capture scenes of American life.
One of the most prominent art teachers of his day, Chase was also the
founder of the Chase School of Art (now the Parsons School of Design)
in New York. The roster of his students included such future
luminaries as Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Hopper and Rockwell Kent.
His vast body of work includes portraits of his mother, Sarah Swaim
Chase, and his grandfather, Moses Swaim. Both are on display in the
Indianapolis Museum of Art.
