William Merritt Chase
Richly patterned textiles, framed artworks, and ornamental objects once decorated William Merritt Chase’s famed Tenth Street studio in New York, which doubled as a social space where the artist cultivated and promoted his artistic persona. An avid collector, Chase embedded himself in an international network of artists and displayed his lavish, cosmopolitan tastes in both his studio and his paintings of its eclectic and densely appointed interiors. Among his best-known works, Chase’s studio scenes are a form of self-portraiture that signal his ambition and growing professional status in New York’s artistic circles.
