- This portrait of Chase’s eleven-year-old daughter is one of a series by him of full-length portraits that use subdued color schemes and a simple background. Enlivening this low-toned painting are the colorful details on Dorothy’s hat and her confident gaze out at the viewer, as well as dexterous brushwork that is entirely Chase’s own.
- Such masterful portraits of his family—painted with obvious affection for the sitters—add a personal touch to Chase’s body of work. This is one of Chase’s best-known and most-acclaimed family portraits.
Artist, New York; purchased from the Exhibition of Indiana Art in Tomlinson Hall, Indianapolis, Indiana, by the John Herron Art Institue, now the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields, in 1903.
