Student or follower of William Merritt Chase (1849-1916). Chase moved to New York in 1869, and studied at the National Academy of Design under a pupil of Gérôme; he later attended the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. When he returned to the US he taught (between 1891 and 1911) at the Shinnecock Hills Summer School, Long Island; the Chase School of Art (later the New York School of Art); the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; the Art Students League of New York; and the Brooklyn Art Association. Chase painted still life arrangements from his student days onwards, and is most noted for his compositions with dead fish, often arranged on a plate and against a dark ground.
