Joseph Chase

Portraitist Joseph Chase was born in Maine, and had an innate attitude for the Old Masters. He studied at the Pratt Institute and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Later he took instruction in Paris at the Julian Academy under the aegis of Jean Paul Laurens.

Chases father was a notable mathematician; young Chase wrote a book on design and taught the subject for years. He was also a Dean of Hunter College. Not surprisingly, a sense of design and rhythm is evident in his work.

Chase painted hundreds of portraits, both complete canvases, and what he called, with great modesty, sketch portraits lacking an elaborate background. Splendid execution can be seen in his 142 paintings of generals and soldier heroes of World War  ...  Displaying 750 of 2707 characters.
