[photo] Mount Tamalpais from Ross Valley, California [3]
Photo credit: Courtesy of Matthew's Galleries, Lake Oswego, Oregon, 2005
Medium: oil on canvas
Size: 20 x 36 in (51 x 91 cm)
Inscription: l/l "F. Schafer"
Verso: said to be titled
Provenance: With Matthew's Galleries, Lake Oswego, Oregon, sold by auction 27 September 2005.
Citations: Personal communication, 2005
Site: View from the south of Mount Tamalpais, in Marin County, California, probably from Frank's Valley rather than Ross Valley.
Note: The reported verso inscription is puzzling. Ross Valley is north of Mount Tamalpais, but the painting is of the mirror-image, southern profile of the mountain. Mount Tamalpais from Ross Valley, California [1], Mount Tamalpais from Ross Valley, California [2], Mount Tamalpais from Ross Valley, California [4] and Mount Tamalpais from Ross Valley, California [5] share this same mistitling; Evening on Mount Tamalpais from Ross Valley, California [1] and Evening on Mount Tamalpais from Ross Valley, California [2] share the title but are views from the North, as one would expect.
