Описание: Praised for his jewel-like landscapes, park scenes, and sympathetic images of women, William Merritt Chase (1849-1916) was a leading American Impressionist painter and an influential teacher in the late 19th century. This beautifully illustrated volume provides a compact introduction to Chase's paintings and pastels and samples several of his favorite motifs, including the theatrical environment of his antique-filled studio, the modern women he celebrated, the costumes and decorative arts of Japan, children at play in city and countryside, and thoughtful moments of leisure and contemplation. A native of the state of Indiana, Chase left his modest boyhood home to study at the Munich Academy, where he both fell in love with the old masters and became determined to celebrate the people and places of his own time. His studio became a stage set for his imagination, where objects from around the world came together in harmonious arrangements of color and form, and where subjects and patrons alike were dazzled by both his paintings and his artistic persona.

Описание: A perennial favourite of museum visitors, the works of William Merritt Chase (1849-1916) embody the quintessential characteristics of American Impressionism:
outdoor landscapes, a colourful palette, and an energetic brush stroke. He was also a portrait painter of the first rank, a master of still life, a renowned teacher, and a leader of artists'
societies. This gorgeous book, the first of a four-volume definitive catalogue, features Chase's stunning paintings in pastel, which constitute a major and previously understudied body of
work by the artist; monotypes; painted tiles and plates; watercolours; and prints.
Reconstructing Chase's oeuvre is a daunting task, as the artist left few records of any kind,
and no documentation of his individual works exists. Fu
thermore, Chase's paintings and pastels have been forged in great numbers throughout the years, and many of these works still surface on the art market. Making this long-awaited
volume even more valuable is a list of every known exhibition of Chase's work during the artist's lifetime, selected examples of major post-1917 exhibitions, and an essay on Chase's
innovative pastel technique.

Описание: The great American artist William Merritt Chase (1849-1916) completed a wide variety of portraits over his long career. Among his subjects were presidents,
businessmen, celebrities, New York luminaries, and members of his family as well as a number of self-portraits. Chase's ability to capture a likeness was renowned, yet it was his dashing
and bravura brushwork that truly set his portraits apart.
This highly anticipated book presents for the first time the entire collection of Chase's known portraits in oil. Each is
gorgeously reproduced, and many are published in colour for the first time. This is the second of four volumes cataloguing the complete works of William Merritt Chase.
catalogue raisonne project has presented immense challenges, for Chase kept no records at all, and staggering numbers of forgeries of his work appeared soon af
er he died. Finding many of his portraits was especially difficult, as no log book of sitters has been located and no other records exist for those works that were not publicly exhibited.
Nevertheless, Ronald Pisano's meticulous research has uncovered more than six hundred portraits in private and public collections.
Among the most notable are Chase's
penetrating portrait of James Abbott McNeill Whistler (The Metropolitan Museum of Art), a commanding portrait of Dora Wheeler (Cleveland Museum of Art), "The Feather Fan" featuring
Chase's oldest daughter, Alice (Musee d'Orsay, Paris), and a 1908 self-portrait (Uffizi Gallery, Florence).
