Chauncey F. Ryder (1868-1949) is an early 20th-century artist who established his own unique style of post impressionism. He was a painter, etcher, lithographer and illustrator who had studios in New Haven, CT, Chicago, New York City and Wilton, NH. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago (c. 1891); Smith's Art Academy; Academie Julian, Paris with Jean Paul Laurens (1901) and with Raphael Collins in Paris. Ryder was an Associate (1915) and an Academician (1920) of the National Academy and was an active member of the Salmagundi Club; National Arts Club; Lotos Club; Allied Artists of America; American Water Color Society; Chicago Society of Etchers and the New York Water Color Club. His first major award came in 1907 at the Paris Salon and during his career he won gold medals at the National Academy, American Water Color Society, the National Arts Club; the New York Water Color Society, the Baltimore Watercolor Society and many more. Ryder painted at Monhegan Island, Paris, Wilton (NH), the coasts of Maine and Massachusetts, and he painted gigantic, dynamic figural scenes of World War I throughout Europe. Ryder is represented in the permanent collections of over 50 museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Art Institute of Chicago; Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art; Baltimore Museum of Art; Corcoran Gallery of Art; National Portrait Gallery; National Academy of Design; Carnegie Art Institute; Museum of Modern Art and more. In 1978 Pierce Galleries, Inc. of Hingham, MA became the sole representatives for Ryder's daughter, and in 1979 they publised the brochure "Chauncey F. Ryder, N.A." that accompanied a retrospective exhibition. Ryder is primarily known for his sparsely painted expansive landscape in which few figures appear. For Ryder, nature reigned supreme.
