[photo] [Mountain landscape 11]

Date: n.d.
Medium: oil on canvas, lined
Size: 20 x 36 in (51 x 92 cm)
Inscription: l/r "F. Schafer" in the artist's characteristic block-printing hand.
Verso: On the left stretcher bar, in pencil "266 met". In a plastic sleeve attached to the upper stretcher bar, a sticker of Stremmel Galleries, Reno, Nevada.
Provenance: "Private Collection, Reno, Nevada" (from the Bonhams catalog); sold 4 August 2015, together with [Evening on Santa Cruz River], as lot 6 for $8125 by Bonhams, Los Angeles.
Reproductions: Bonhams sale catalog 22419
Note: 1. The Bonhams sale catalog suggests that the mountain in the painting may be Mount Lassen, in northern California. The profile of the mountain does not resemble any of the Schafer paintings with available images that the artist titled "Lassen Peak", nor other untitled Schafer paintings that are probably Mount Lassen. 2. The placement of the gallery sticker in a plastic sleeve to preserve it suggests that it was originally attached to the frame or stretcher bars.
Identification: Assigned, descriptive title (see note 2)
Other title(s): Thought to be Mount Lassen (Bonhams sale catalog)
