Chase Copy - SOLD
Chase Copy Shinnecock Hills, William Merritt Chase, c. 1895 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. Do you know the American Impressionist painter, William Merritt Chase? I didn't at all (which is no indication of his fame, really) but he was a teacher of Georgia O'Keefe, and his Long Island landscapes are just gorgeous. You can see some of his work here. The one I copied ( a portion of it) is called Shinnecock Hills and it's at the Smithsonian. It's just beautiful, full of ochres, sienna, beautiful greens, lovely. I will be studying his work more, I really didn't get it quite right.
