This biography from the Archives of AskART:
William Wallace Gilchrist, an Impressionist painter of landscapes, genre scenes, interiors, and an accomplished portrait painter, grew up in Pennsylvania.  In his youth he spent summers on the Maine coast at Prout's Neck where he knew Winslow Homer and was one of the few artists to receive friendly criticism from the artist.  Throughout his short career, due to an early death, he was active on the coast north of Portland, Maine.

He was an influence on the artists of Boston and Pennsylvania during his lifetime.  Though his work is rare because he was not a prolific artist, his paintings were discovered in the late 1990s in the old family home in Maine, where his descendents still live.  They were exhibited and snapped up by collectors.  Gilchrist's portrait in oil of Paul Beck, Jr., 1910, is in University of Delaware Art Collection, Newark, Delaware.  He was also an instructor at the Carnegie Institute.

Biography from Morris & Whiteside Galleries:
William Wallace Gilchrist, Jr. (1879-1926)

He was born in Philadelphia and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts under Cecilia Beaux, Thomas Anshutz and William Merritt Chase and was a member of the Arts Club of Philadelphia and Watercolor Club of Philadelphia.  Vacations were spent at Prout’s Neck, Maine where he received instruction from his close friend Winslow Homer.

At the turn of the century he traveled and studied in London, Munich and Paris where he was influenced by portraits in the European tradition.  He won a prize at the National Academy of Design in 1908 and a gold medal at the Washington Society of Artists in 1914.

His work may be found in the Cincinnati Museum of Art, Bowdoin College Museum, The University of Delaware Art Collection and The Athenaeum of Philadelphia.

He is listed in E. Bénézit, 1976 Edition, Mantle Fielding’s Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptors & Engravers, 1983 Edition, The Biographical Index of American Artists, 1967 Edition, Mallett’s Index of Artists, International-biographical, 1948 Edition and Who Was Who in American Art, 1898-1947, 1985 Edition.
