[photo] [Evening, Mount Hood from The Dalles, Oregon]
Photo credit: Early California and Western Art Research, 1974
Medium: oil on canvas
Size: 20 x 30 in (51 x 76 cm)
Inscription: l/l "F. Schafer", underlined, in the artist's block-letter hand
Provenance: With Maxwell Galleries, Ltd., San Francisco, 1974. To collection of Ivan B. and Elvira Hart, Oakland, California; by gift to The Sonoma County Museum, Hart Collection, from 1985.
Reproductions: Early California and Western Art Research/Schafer slide #17 (color, 1974)
Site: A view from the Northeast of Mount Hood, Oregon, as seen from The Dalles, a gorge along the Columbia River.
Description: The picture is entirely in shades of yellow and gold, including the sky and a few clouds. The snow-capped peak of Mount Hood is in the center; a valley wall forms a triangle on the lower left sloping down to a river below on the right; farther to the right is a distant valley wall. (From a color photograph.)
Note: In a 16 September 1999 letter, Evangeline Tai, curator of the Sonoma County Museum reported that this painting is 28 x 38 inches in size. This report raises the question of whether or not there may be two different paintings with the same title.
Identification: Descriptive title of unknown origin, from the Early California and Western Art Research index. That index identifies the slide both with the 1974 Maxwell Galleries, Ltd. offering and the Sonoma Museum.
