William Merritt Chase, a renowned figure in the international art circles of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, was a brilliant observer of contemporary life, an innovative painter, and an influential teacher. As the centennial of his death approaches, this retrospective—the first in over three decades—explores the interrelationships in Chase’s work across subject and media.
