About

Signed lower left, 'Richard Gabriel Chase' (American, 1919-2007) and painted circa 1960. Born in Massachusetts, Chase first studied at the Worcester Art Museum School, later earning his degree from Massachusetts College of Art. He subsequently studied privately with Ernest Major and Victor Humann. After serving in the Army during WWII, he moved to southern California where he continued to paint, exhibit and teach life-drawing and portraiture at San Bernardino College. Chase favored landscapes and coastal scenes of his adopted home and was also commissioned to create large-scale, historical murals commemorating the history of San Diego and the Southland, many of which remain installed in public locations in Southern California. These include a major mural series for SouthWestern Bank on the early history of Rancho San Dieguito showing Mexican rancheros and Indian workers during the 1830s, as they irrigated and harvested beans, corn, peppers, and other crops along the San Dieguito River, just south of present-day Rancho Santa Fe. Reference: "Artists in California, 1786-1940" Edan Hughes, 1986; San Diego History Center; et al.
