Information about this image:
Original: Published Sunday, 8 February 1920, by (New York City) The Sun LXXXVII, 161, page 16, column 2.
Adjustments: Image digitally contrast-enhanced and sharpened. Image contains ICC color profile.
Note: The advertisement mentions a catalog, but a copy of that catalog has not been located. While this sale could be evidence of a visit by Schafer to New York City, it is more likely that the painting or paintings were consigned by a collector whose acquisition dates back to the time when Schafer was working in New York City, or a painting that migrated with its owner from somewhere farther west where Schafer sold paintings, such as Chicago.
Calibration: Targets
