"A.N.A., New York. b. Vermont. Pupil of Mesdag at the Hague; of the Royal Academy in Munich, under Kaulbach, and studied in Paris, 1877-1878. " Mr. Chase has few rivals in the rendition of marine views and coast scenes. He seems to possess many of the best characteristics of both Achenbach and Clays, while at the same time he is intensely original. - Louisville Courier-Journal. " A characteristic scene at Sheveningen, where almost the whole population depends upon the fishing interest for its existence. The picture shows a fleet of boats on the verge of departure - indeed, some have already gone, and can barely be seen along the horizon. Others are being loaded for the cruise, and others still have their sails set, just ready to push off. Numbers of persons in the quaint Hollandish costume stand in the foreground watching the boats depart. The picture has the effect of a morning on a gray day, with plenty of light in the the sky, but no glaring sunshine. The little pools of water in the depressions in the sand, in the foreground, are very effectively painted, and add much to the exceedingly realistic effect which prevails in the picture. - Illustrated Art Notes, National Academy, 1883."
