Frederick Ferdinand Schafer Painting Catalog
About the artist and his art
Academic-strength version (caution: contains footnotes)
The reader should understand that the term "Academic" in the title is relative. The author is an academic, but is not trained in either art history or the techniques of painting. In consequence, despite the academic style of these notes, the observations made here should be taken as those of an amateur. There is more on this point in Preface: Why a professor of engineering is maintaining an art history web site.
