  William Merritt Chase   (1840-1916)

  [MAN IN DUTCH COSTUME SMOKING A CLAY PIPE], 1882. Signed and dated in the block, printed on thin Japan tissue. No engraver's name. This is a wood engraving in the extraordinarily fine "New School" manner (so-called by W.J. Linton, the authority on late-19th century wood engraving). It is after a painting which reflects Chase's training in Munich.
  Wood engraving, 9 1/4" x 6 1/8". SOLD.
