William Merritt Chase
A merchant’s son, William Merritt Chase was destined to inherit the family business. However, his interest in art spurred him to go against his parents’ wishes and he became a prominent painter on the American art scene on account of his energetic teaching work and involvement in many groundbreaking initiatives.
The Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum is a Madrid art gallery exhibiting the works of old and modern masters. It owes its existence to the lease agreement (1988) and the subsequent acquisition by the Spanish Government (1993), of the most valuable core of the private collection built over seven decades by the Thyssen-Bornemisza family.
