William M. Chase, N. A. is a 1902 painting by John Singer Sargent. It is part of the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.[1]

The subject of the portrait, William Merritt Chase, was an American painter, known as an exponent of Impressionism and as a leading New York art teacher. The postnomial N. A. indicates his election to New York's National Academy of Design. The painting was commissioned by a group of his pupils, who subsequently raised the money to pay Sargent by exhibiting the work.

The work is now on view in The Metropolitan Museum's Gallery 774.
