ACTIVELY PURCHASING THE WOODBLOCK / WOODCUT PRINTS AND ORIGINAL ARTWORKS OF WALDO S. CHASE & W. CORWIN CHASE
The expressive and delicate colored woodblock prints created by Washington State artists WALDO SPORE CHASE (1895-1988) and his brother WENDELL CORWIN CHASE (1897-1988) during the early decades of the twentieth century were cherished in the Pacific Northwest during their time, and have seen a resurgence of interest within recent years. The brothers are noted for this absorption of the principles and artistic expression of the Japanese method of color woodblock printmaking, and their creative adaptation of the process to incorporate a delicate touch and emphasis on light that was more a reflection of Impressionist painting than Japanese sensibilities.
