Here Shinnecock artist @jeremynative provides a new important perspective on William Merritt Chase’s “At the Seaside”, ca. 1892, explaining: “This artwork depicts a leisurely beach scene painted one year after Chase opened a school of art near the Shinnecock Indian Reservation on Long Island’s East End. This land is situated on the Shinnecock People’s ancestral territory—of which more than 4,422 acres was stolen through an illegal transaction in 1859.” #history #longisland #perspectives #nativeamericanhistory #shinnecock #art #newperspective #nativeperspectives #metmuseum #eastend – #regrann
