WILLIAM MERRITT CHASE (1849-1916): UN PITTORE TRA NEW YORK E VENEZIA
The catalogue collects a comprehensive itinerary of William Merritt Chase’s works (1849-1916). It was published on the occasion of the exhibition held at the Ca’ Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art in Venice (11th February- 28 May 2017), organized by The Phillips Collection in Washington DC, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Civic Museums Foundation of Venice and Terra Foundation for American Art – where the works of the American Impressionism exponent dialogue with the city and the museum collection. Still lives, portraits, landscapes, pastels artworks and plein air paintings allow us to examine the key periods of the artist, who had looked much at Europe and Italy, particularly Venice, which is a city he visited several times, as demonstrated by the many paintings of that period.
The catalogue, hard-covered with dust jacket, is completed with bibliographical appendixes and by critical and historical-artistic essays.
