Shortly before my grandfather died in Helsinki, he gave me what I believe is an original black (probably India) ink drawing. It's possible it's a print, but I'm almost certain it's an original. Silly me had it reframed to fit in with my more modern decor, and I no longer have the original frame (which might have helped to identify the artist).
In any case, I'm including a photo of the drawing and a close up of the artist's signature. My grandfather told me that the drawing was done by "a famous" Finnish artist who usually painted landscapes (if memory serves me correctly).
If anyone here recognizes the artist's signature, I would be most grateful. The date appears to be 1928 and the scene is of the tori (market) by the harbourside that still exists today.
I'm sorry for posting this in the posters section of "Art + Photos" but it's the closest fit I could think of.
