    Really looking forward to seeing this. I'm a huge Chase fan, having grown up in Long Island and first exposed to his work at the Southampton Museum if Art with his series set there. I managed to incorporate a Chase into my most recent English mystery, when my American protagonist recognizes a study for "The Open Air Breakfast in a Bath gallery. It becomes a plot point; the image is on the book's back cover. When I visit I'm happy to leave you a copy of The Golden Hour if you're interested~

    I may have missed this but when will Chase's An American in Venice be available for viewing?

    This wonderful painting is now on view in the American Gallery in West Building. For Chase fans, there's another painting on view by Chase as well, in the same gallery.
