Biography from Braarud Fine Art:
Born in Woodstock, Vermont in 1853, Harry Chase was drawn from the start to marine painting. While studying art in Munich, he completed scenes on the North Sea coast of Denmark. After a brief stint in Saint Louis, he returned to Europe, painting the French coast while working for two years in France.

The artist also spent three years in Holland, primarily in the Hague, where he studied with Hendrik Willem Mesdag. William Gerdts (Art Across America: Two Centuries of Regional Painting 1710-1920), who chronicles these experiences and training, notes that Chase became one of the major American proponents of the Hague School of Dutch Impressionist painters before returning to Saint Louis in 1879.

Soon after, Chase moved to New Bedford, Massachusetts and eventually to New York City. His work is discussed in Mary Jane Blasdale's 1990 Artists of New Bedford.

Chase died at the untimely age of 36, in Sewanee, Tennesse, but paintings from his relatively brief career are widely collected. Among the numerous significant American collections in which they are included are the Corcoran Museum of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, Carnegie Institute, and Indianapolis Museum of Art.
