Book by Bryant, Keith L.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This handsome and interesting book, perfect for the browsing shelf, examines the life of a man instrumental in fostering the growth and appreciation of art in turn-of-the-century America. Bryant has a journalist's gift for patter, and as a historian--not an art historian--he is better at presenting American culture generally than art itself. But Bryant has patiently sifted through masses of first-hand sources to write this account. Chase is sympathetically characterized as a glittering personality, rather resembling his own vivid, slashing, eclectic painting style. The book stresses Chase's role as a teacher and promoter of art (Hopper, O'Keeffe, and Joseph Stella numbered among his pupils) and as a devoted husband and father. Recommended mainly for general readers.
