Frederick Ferdinand Schafer Painting Catalog

Painting record FFSd0851


[photo] [Mount Hood]

Medium: oil on canvas
Size: 20 x 30 in (51 x 76 cm)
Inscription: unsigned
Verso: none reported
Provenance: With Clar's Auction Gallery, Oakland, CA, 6 April 2008 and again 8 June 2008.
Reproductions: Clar's Auction Gallery 6 April 2008 sale catalog 463, lot 2191 and 8 June 2008 sale catalog 466, lot 2207 (color).
Attribution: Unsigned, described in the Clar's Auction Gallery sale catalogs as "manner of Frederick Schafer". Although the overall composition and palette are somewhat Schafer-like, there are enough concerns that it is doubtful that this painting should be attributed to Schafer. The painting has no central focus, the foreground has little detail, and the canvas texture is visible. May be by J.J.Englehart.
Identification: Assigned descriptive title, apparently by Clar's Auction Gallery.
