William Merritt Chase first came to paint in the Shinnecock Hills in 1891, at the invitation of two civic-minded Southamptonites who proposed opening a summer art academy based on the plein-air schools then popular in Europe. His own schooling at Munich's Royal Academy and a decade spent traveling abroad made Chase one of the most worldly and sophisticated American painters and the most renowned teacher of his day--the logical choice to become founding director of the Shinnecock Hills Summer School of Art.
