Frank Swift Chase (1886-1958)
Vose Galleries has been a longstanding proponent of the works of Frank Swift Chase. Chase’s studies at the Art Students League and the Woodstock School of Landscape Painting, accompanied by a lifelong passion for the natural world, led him into the woods of upstate New York. Swift became an integral member of the artist’s community in Woodstock, often teaching plein aire. The large portion of the estate was acquired from two sources, a prominent collector and the artist’s son. Two estate shows have been held at Vose Galleries, and both were met with great success . The shows consisted of paintings depicting Woodstock, New York, Nantucket, Massachusetts, Palm Springs, California, and Sarasota, Florida.
