Frederick Ferdinand Schafer Painting Catalog

Paintings known only by title


About paintings known only by title

Paintings in this list were mentioned in one or more sources such as a nineteenth-century sale catalog or newspaper that offered little or no information beyond the title. Schafer often gave several paintings the same title, so when different sources mention the same title, or a mentioned title is the same as that of a fully-catalogued painting, there may be no way to determine whether they are referring to the same painting. As will be seen, entries in this list consist of just the title plus a list of places that mentioned that title.

For works that are fully catalogued, see the Other lists and indexes.

• California Landscape Painting, 1860–1885.
Note: Since the painting has not been located it is not known which spelling is correctly associated with it. It is also not known whether this is a painting of the port city of Mazatlan, on the west coast of Mexico, or of the German four-masted ship Mazatlan, a popular subject for artists in the late nineteenth century. (The use of the word "landscape" in the (San Francisco) The Illustrated Wasp report suggests that it is not a marine painting, but that word also suggests that it is not a city view.)

The existence of this title has caused speculation and, more recently, a possibly correct legend concerning Schafer's travels. See Legends and myths about Schafer for details.

Note: Reksten, Terry, Craigdarroch: The Story of Dunsmuir Castle suggests that Craigdarroch may have originally acquired this painting in a September 1891 auction (Vancouver Daily World, September 1891) held by Schafer in Vancouver, British Columbia. The entire contents of Craigdarroch were sold at auction in 1909. The auction catalog lists eight paintings by Schafer; this painting was among the contents of the smoking room. According to Nesbitt in the The Vancouver Sun article, in recent years some effort went into reacquiring as many of the auctioned paintings as possible. This is one of two paintings that remain unlocated. Provenance: In collection of Joan Olive (Mrs. Robert) Dunsmuir, Craigdarroch Castle, Victoria, British Columbia; to her estate in 1909; sold by H. W. Davies, M.A.A., & Sons, Auctioneers, 22 June 1909.
