(1879 - 1962)
William Chadwick was active/lived in Connecticut, New York / United Kingdom. William Chadwick is known for sea-landscape, figure-genre and floral painting.
Impressionist William Chadwick focused on portrait and landscape subjects and spent much time at the artists colony at Old Lyme, Connecticut. He had a strong reputation among his colleagues but was not greatly known beyond his own circle.
He was born in Dewsbury, England, and emigrated to New York City where friends from the Art Students League encouraged him, age 23, to paint at Old Lyme, Connecticut. This experience redirected him from portrait and figure subjects to landscapes, and he spent many future summers at Old Lyme.
In New York, he shared studio space with Will Howe Foote and Harry Hoffman and summers with them at Old Lyme, and eventually these three artists and their families moved to Old Lyme.
