Waterside with American William Merritt Chase 1849-1916


American artist William Merritt Chase (1848-1916) had a way of capturing the light of summer on the Atlantic coast in everyday landscapes. In these paintings, he uses his wife and his children as models. He wrote, "Do not try to paint the grandiose thing. Paint the commonplace so that it will be distinguished."
