Frederick Ferdinand Schafer Painting Catalog

Painting record FFSd0937


[photo] [Landscape with sunset]

Medium: Chalk on unknown support
Size: not reported
Inscription: l/r "Schafer"
Provenance: Private collection, Atlanta, Georgia
Citations: Personal communication with the owner, 2011
Attribution: The subject matter, palette, and composition are similar to that of Frederick F. Schafer's work. However, the signature is quite dissimilar to the signature appearing on other works by Frederick F. Schafer, with the absence of a first initial, each letter having at least one carefully rounded stroke, and a swooping underline.

Several other paintings with this signature and other similar characteristics have emerged, all in the near midwest of the United States. The tentative conclusion is that there is another artist with surname Schafer who worked in that area. For a summary of what has been learned about this other artist, see One or two Kentucky (?) Schafers.

Note: Found in a Georgia antique shop.
Identification: Assigned, descriptive title
