Chauncey Ryder studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and spent seven years in Paris before returning to the United States, where he would divide his time between New York and Wilton, New Hampshire. A retiring man who eschewed all public notice of his art, Ryder nevertheless established a strong reputation as a landscape artist, becoming a full academician of the National Academy of Design in New York and selling his work through the well-known Macbeth Galleries. In his own day he was credited with successfully translating the American landscape into twentieth-century terms.
