About the Artist

Saul Chase was born in the Bronx in 1945. He became interested in drawing and painting at an early age, finding inspiration in hidden beauties of the urban landscape that surrounded him. The elevated trains, stations and train yards, decaying industrial structures and giant signs, became the subject matter of Chase's iconic architectural paintings and silkscreen prints .
