Photo credit: Collector's photograph, 2021
Date: n.d.
Medium: oil on canvas laid down on board
Size: 19 x 11 in (48 x 28 cm)
Inscription: Signed, l/l: "F Schafer" in the artist's characteristic block-printing hand.
Verso: Titled: "Autumn Evening", in the artist's characteristic block-printing hand, now covered by board.
Provenance: Sold December 2018 for $785 by Jon Berg Fine Art, Santa Monica, California, to private collection, Lake Oswego, Oregon.
Citations: Personal communication with the 2018 collector.
Note: A painting with this title appeared on page 53 of the record of the Mechanics' Institute Nineteenth Industrial Exhibition in San Francisco in 1884 and may have subsequently been sold at one of several auctions in 1885 and 1886 that included paintings from that exhibition. For example, see lot 65 in the catalog of a sale in Salt Lake City in May 1886 by C. P. Troy. Both the exhibition and the auction lists include a second painting titled "Spring Morning", a possible pendant. Unfortunately, these sources provide only titles, so there is not enough information to tell whether or not it is this same painting.
Identification: Title from a photograph of the artist's verso inscription before the canvas was laid down.
