CURATOR’S TALK: Alicia Longwell on William Merritt Chase and His Neighbors

April 3, 5 pm - 6 pm

 

Tune into the second live streamed program from the Parrish!

The special connections and ongoing relationships between artist William Merritt Chase (1849–1916), his family and students, and members of the Shinnecock Nation beginning in the late 1800s is revealed in William Merritt Chase and his Neighbors: a live, online, illustrated talk by Alicia G. Longwell, Ph.D., The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator at the Museum, followed by a live Q&A.

Longwell’s talk is based on the 2019 exhibition William Merritt Chase: The Shinnecock Years, which featured paintings dating from 1894 to 1900 and archival images that shed light on a largely unknown history and revealed the bonds that grew among Chase (1849–1916), other “summer colonists,” and the people of the Reservation. The founding director of the Shinnecock Hills Summer School of Art, Chase came to Southampton in 1891 and spent summers there with his family for the next 25 years. Mrs. Chase recorded these summers in photographs taken with her Kodak box camera and printed in blue-toned cyanotype.

The Chases and the community relied on the Shinnecock for everything from food to domestic support –the Shinnecock grew produce to sell to the summer community, along with eggs, broiler chickens, and Muscovy ducks. A significant part of the summer colonists’ leisure activities, men from the Reservation built the Shinnecock Hills golf course and were sought after hunting and fishing guides
