[photo] Morning on Silver Lake, California [3]

Date: n.d.
Medium: oil on canvas
Size: 30 x 50 in (76 x 127 cm)
Inscription: l/r "F. Schafer" in the characteristic block lettering hand of the artist
Verso: Said to be "Morning on Silver Lake / California"
Provenance: With Bonhams, San Francisco, 21 November 2011. With eBay, Incorporated, Springfield, Massachusetts, November 2014. With Michaan's Auctions by the Bay, Inc., Alameda, California, 7 March 2015.
Reproductions: Bonhams 21 November 2011 sale 19417 catalog, lot 13; Michaan's Auctions by the Bay, Inc. 7 March 2015 Estate Auction sale catalog lot 232.
Note: 1. This painting may bear some relation to Evening on Silver Lake, California (attributed) 3. There are a half-dozen bodies of water named "Silver Lake" in California. Another painting of the same scene as this one has the title Silver Lake below Lake Tahoe, California, which potentially identifies the correct "Silver Lake". However, that identification is unconfirmed.
Identification: Title from reported verso inscription. Although the 7 March 2015 sale catalog assigns a descriptive title that is quite different from the reported verso inscription, the photograph is of the same painting as in the 21 November 2011 sale.
Other title(s): [Sunrise on lake] (Michaan's Auctions by the Bay, Inc. 7 March 2015 sale catalog)
