    Picture was at my grandmother's for years, was told someone in the family did it, but then I saw the signature. Actual picture (not the frame) is about 25" x 7" - Frame is odd, on the inside of the back cardboard, odd Ukrainian phrases...taped to the back with years like 1928, 1936....typed out.

    Just curious.....if it was by William Henry Chandler - signature looks right, but who knows?

    Thanks for any info!

      Have you found comparison signatures? DO you have any Ukraine in your area who can translate? It is SO beautiful!!

      Look at the C and then the space between the n and the d.
      I think you're in business.

      Thanks for the reply Celiene....I have found some comparisons, I just wanted some second opinions :) The spacing of the letters looks right, I was just kinda surprised at it, since all this time I thought a relative had done it. It is a nice picture. I sent the phrases to my Uncle who can read Ukrainian, just waiting to see what he says. It almost seems like hidden messages!

      Thanks Matisse - I agree it looks the same. For years I never noticed the signature, and the other day I looked and googled Chandler and pastel and was surprised!
