Notes from the Curator: Although the form of the signature is like that used by William Chase after about 1885, several stylistic features point to a date late in Chase’s Munich period (1872-78), especially the broadly brushed colored background, the working of the hair into an unruly mass extended beyond reasonable limits, and the overly strong, flat lighting with white high, lights-characteristics of Chase’s Munich style, which he abandoned soon after his return to New York in 1878. By leaving parts of the composition in a conspicuously unfinished state, Chase and his American and German associates in Munich drew attention to the forceful realism in the finished portions of the face, and to the fact that the rendering was achieved in just one sitting rather than as a result of two or more sessions. For instance, in subsequent revisions the artist also would have worked in the back, ground light and shadow over the extended portion of the hair, bringing the entire painting to a state of uniform finish. The clarity of vision and economy of means that produced such realistic definition and strong characterization bear witness to the technical brilliance achieved by Chase at the Munich Academy. In 1928 the subject was identified as a violinist and in 1937 as the celebrated virtuoso and composer Pablo de Sarasate (1844-1904), who toured widely during the 1870s. Chase’s subject seems older than thirty-one, Sarasate’s age in 1875, although the portrait bears a general resemblance to other images of the violinist. In 1875 Sarasate would not have worn the lapel rosette of the Legion of Honor, which may have been added at a later date. The canvas may have been stored rolled up, causing a multitude of fine, horizontal cracks to appear. Chase later may have painted over the background, hair, and costume in a uniform dark tone and again signed the painting. This is the way the portrait must have appeared when Chase exhibited it early in this century. It was necessary to remove this overpainting during conservation by the museum’s staff.

Select the material of your choice

In the product dropdown lists you can pick your individual material and size. The following options are available for individualization:

  • Poster (canvas material): The Artprinta poster print is a printed canvas with a fine surface texture, that reminds the actual work of art. Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster print we add a white margin 2-6cm around the painting to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
  • Aluminium dibond print: Aluminium Dibond prints are prints on metal with a true depth. A non-reflective surface make a modern look. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is your excellent start to replicas with aluminum. For the Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your chosen artwork onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum composite. The colors are vivid and luminous in the highest definition, the details are crisp and clear, and you can notice a matte appearance of the surface.
  • Printed acrylic glass (with real glass coating): The acrylic glass print, often named a UV print on plexiglass, will change the original artwork into magnificient wall décor. The major upside of a plexiglass fine art copy is that contrasts and details become recognizeable because of the granular tonal gradation. The acrylic glass protects your selected fine art print against light and heat for many years.
  • Canvas print: A canvas print, which should not be mistaken with an artwork painted on a canvas, is a digital image printed from an industrial printer. A canvas produces the particular impression of three dimensionality. Hanging your canvas print: A canvas print has the advantage of being relatively low in weight, which implies that it is easy to hang the Canvas print without the support of extra wall-mounts. Because of thata canvas print is suitable for any type of wall.
