The Parrish Art Museum, on Long Island's East End, holds one of the largest public collections of William Merritt Chase in the United States: over forty paintings and works on paper, and a wealth of archival photographs and documents.

This volume features thirty works from his whole career: early still lifes from Europe, famous New York park scenes and studio works from the 1880s, and landscape paintings and portraits from the 1890s and 1900s. It also includes many family photographs taken during summer spent in Shinnecock Hills, Long Island, where Chase founded, and taught at, the Summer School of Art.
