Size: 30 x 50 in (76 x 126 cm)

Verso: None reported, but may be titled.
Provenance: Peters estate, Nazareth, Pennsylvania; Pook & Pook, Inc., auctioneers, Downingtown, Pennsylvania 14 Jan 2011.
Reproductions: 14 Jan 2011 On-line catalog, lot 175

Note: Two paintings with the same title were offered as lots 60 and 130 in the catalog of a 17 November 1885 auction in San Francisco and as lot 43 in the catalog of a May 1886 exhibition and auction sale in Salt Lake City, Utah Territory, but the information in those catalogs is insufficient to either include or exclude the possibility that either of those is this painting.
Identification: The auction listing describes the painting as "titled", which may mean that the title comes from a verso inscription.
