Card signed in ink: "Wm M. Chase"
, 1908. 1908. 1 vols. 4 x 5 inches. Fine condition. 1 vols. 4 x 5 inches. American Painter William Merritt Chase. William Merritt Chase (1849-1916) was born in Indiana and worked there for a time as a portrait painter, but came east to study in New York, and subsequently in Munich, beginning a lifetime habit of travel and study abroad. He developed into a famous portraitist, with two studios in New York and one in Philadelphia, as well as gaining renown as a teacher at the New York School of Art, which he had founded in the 1890s, and the Pennsylvania Academy. A dapper dresser, he was the American counterpart of Adolphe William Bouguereau--he claimed "Delicacy of detail is the essence of art"--and equally successful.
