Site: Fallen Leaf Lake, just west of Lake Tahoe, was a frequent subject for 19th century west coast landscape artists.
Note: A painting with the same title was offered as lot 18 on page 2 of the catalog for a 22 September 1882 auction sale in San Francisco by George F. Lamson. A painting with the same title followed by "near Lake Tahoe" was offered as lot 129 on page 8 of the catalog of a 17 November 1885 auction in San Francisco. Unfortunately, the information in the two catalogs is not sufficient to either include or exclude the possibility that one of them is this painting.
