Biography from Hampton House Auctions:
William Henry Chandler is a prolific pastel artist. Living in New Jersey and working from his studios in New York City, Chandler is a deeply religious man who creates primarily landscape scenes. He also paints fruit and dead-game still lifes, seascapes and occasionally some foreign scenes.

And not all "Chandler" pastels were created by Chandler's own hand. Rather, at the peak of his business, orders were sometimes so numerous that Chandler employed a stable of artists who created a large number of "original" pastels in the style of Chandler, who signed the "Chandler" name to them, and who sold them through the Chandler Studios.

Most Chandler pastels were signed "Chandler" either by Chandler himself, or one of his staff artists. And frequently Chandler pastels left the studio unsigned. Often when sold in pairs, only one pastel of the pair would be signed.

Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
William Henry Chandler (1854-1928) was born on June 9, 1854 in New York City. One of seven children born to Mr. & Mrs. Asa Byram Chandler, he lived while growing up with his deeply religious Christian family in Elizabeth NJ, East Orange NJ, and Summit NJ. For his entire life, he retained his deeply religious convictions. William displayed an interest in art during his youth but had other interests as well. A hunting accident early in his life left him with a life-long limp.

As a young man, Chandler moved to Chicago and obtained artistic work as a cameo engraver in a pearl button manufacturing business. While in Chicago he met and married his first wife, Jennie Freeman. Together they had three children (Kathleen, Annabel, and Nellie). Tragedy struck the Chandler household hard as Nellie died when only a few months old. And then Chandler's wife Jennie died shortly thereafter from typhoid fever.

With his wife gone and two remaining children to raise, Chandler returned to northern New Jersey where he lived for the rest of his life and raised his daughters with the help of his sister.
