"William Merritt Chase - Fish paintings"_Old Masters.

William Merritt Chase painted still lifes throughout his career as he had done since his student days. Decorative objects filled his studios and homes, and his interior figurative scenes frequently included still life images. He was particularly adept at capturing the effect of light on metallic surfaces such as copper bowls and pitchers. Perhaps Chase's most famous still life subject was dead fish, which he liked to paint against dark backgrounds, limp on a plate as though fresh from a fishmonger's stall.

William Merritt Chase pintó naturalezas muertas a lo largo de su carrera como lo había hecho desde su época de estudiante. Los objetos decorativos llenaban sus estudios y hogares. Era particularmente hábil para captar el efecto de la luz sobre superficies metálicas como cuencos y jarras de cobre. Quizás los bodegones más famosos fueron sobre peces muertos, que pintaba sobre un fondo oscuro, peces muertos en un plato  procedentes de un puesto de pescado.
