Case was born in Suffield, Connecticut, but raised in Springfield, Massachusetts after the deaths of his parents. There he was educated in the local public school and the Suffield Academy, and then the long-gone Eastman’s Business College in Poughkeepsie, New York.

He served in the U. S. Navy during the Civil War and survived his stay at the infamous Confederate Libby Prison in Richmond, Virginia after his ship, the U.S.S. Isaac Smith, was captured. Following the war, he settled in New York City and first took art private study and later enrolled at the National Academy of Design, apparently eschewing his former business education.

In the mid-1870s, Case traveled to Europe and enrolled at the Académie Julian in Paris, France and also painted in England, Holland and Italy. In 1875, When he returned to the United States in 1875, he settled in Springfield where he was to remain for the remainder of his life.

Case exhibited at the National Academy of Design in New York City as well as venues in the Springfield area.
