Why We Love It
Chase is recognized as one of the foremost American artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. While he was equally adept at depicting a wide variety of subjects, the genre of still life proved to be particularly successful for him, both as a teaching tool and a source of income. As usual with Autumn Still Life, Chase managed to “paint the commonplace in such a way as to make it distinguished.” This masterful still life was bequeathed to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and remained in their collection until 2009.

The Value
Chase’s love of still life shows in so much of his work. His interior scenes are often scattered with a welter of objects painted with great dexterity and care. Autumn Still Life is an exceptional example of Chases’s mastery of the subject. The influence of the Dutch masters of the 17th century is so clear and finely born out. The impeccable provenance of this painting along with its fine condition and frame make it a stunning example of American still life.
