[no photo] [Mount Shasta]

Medium: oil on canvas
Size: at least 30 x 50 (may be 50 x 30)
Provenance: said to be with Maxwell Galleries, Ltd., San Francisco, in the early 1990's.
Description: "…a small group of frontiersmen in broad brimmed hats and long rifles in the foreground. Behind them a massive snow capped peak (supposedly Mt. Shasta) arose, disappeared into the mist, and then reappeared at the very top of the canvas." "[The mountain was] like a generic Bierstadt-like peak which arose very precipitously in the background and dominated the top of the painting" (from a reporter's description.)
