Chapman is predominantly known for his luxuriant landscapes of northern New York and Canada, painted in a realist style. "Chinese Restaurant" is apparently atypical for the artist, created using a dynamic and painterly mode, which, in the screen at the back of the composition, approaches abstraction. He was named an academician of the National Academy of Design in 1926, certifying him as an artist of ability as well as professional stature. Over the years, Chapman won a number of awards and exhibited at various institutions including: the Salmagundi Club, the Corcoran Gallery, National Academy of Design, Art Institute of Chicago, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Chapman was an illustrator and illustrated a number of books including works by western author Zane Grey. He also established a school of illustration in Leonia with fellow artist Harvey Dunn.
