Chase, William Merritt Biography


William Merritt Chase settled in New York in 1878 after five years studying in Munich and became the most important American teacher of his generation. He taught at the Art Students' League of New York and then at his own Chase School of Art, founded in 1896. The vigorous handling and fresh colour characteristic of much of the best American painting of the early 20th century owes a good deal to his example. His pupils included Charles Demuth, Georgia O'Keefe, and Charles Sheeler. William Merritt Chase was a highly prolific artist and his artwork is represented in many American museums.
