Description: 
These portraits are the only known works by Winthrop Chandler executed in pastels. With the exception of a possible portrait painting apprenticeship in Boston and about five years in Worcester, Chandler lived his entire life in Chandler Hill, Connecticut. Since Chandler did not sign any of his known works, all attributions are based on documentary evidence that relates the artist to the painting through family tradition or stylistic similarities. The subjects' piercing eyes, tightly pursed lips, beetling brows, and strongly modeled faces are characteristic features of Chandler's work.
