William Merritt Chase: My Little Daughter Dorothy

William Merritt Chase

My Little Daughter Dorothy, c. 1894

“Everything about this portrait appeals to me: the sophistication of Chase's sketchy style, the warmth of his color palette, but most important, the charm that he captures in this delightful little girl. This piece is very special to me because my mother too was named Dorothy. She was born in 1921, and as our old family pictures will attest, looked just like this child in every way. That is why when I walk by the painting, I always stop, smile, and wish not only William's daughter, but my mother, now deceased, a happy day. ”
