[photo] Morning on Mount Shasta, from Strawberry Valley, California

Medium: oil on canvas
Size: 30 x 50 in (76 x 127 cm)
Inscription: said to be l/l "F. Schafer", not visible in reproduction
Verso: Said to be "Morning on Mt Shasta, from Strawberry Valley, California"
Provenance: To private collection, Mexico City, by 1906; to Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa, Oklahoma, April 1952.
Citations: Gilcrease acquisition #0116.2070
Site: A view to the northeast of Black Butte and Mount Shasta from a viewpoint in a meadow about 4 miles west of the Strawberry Valley Stage Station.
Note: 1. Strawberry Valley is an early name for the modern town of Mount Shasta City. Although the name of the town was changed to "Sisson" in 1886, the older name probably continued to be used for many years, so the title does not help to precisely date the painting. 2. The Black Butte, Shasta in the distance, from Sisson's, California and Mount Shasta [9] are very similar scenes of Black Butte and Mount Shasta, viewed from the same meadow. Sunset on Mount Shasta from Sissons, California (attributed) is from from Sisson's Hotel in the center of Strawberry Valley, a viewpoint just far enough to the east that Black Butte is not in the picture.
