Frederick Ferdinand Schafer Painting Catalog
Other artists who sign their paintings &8220;Schafer&8221;
| An oil painting in a completely different style bears the stylized signature "Schafer" centered on a horizontal line that comprises the lower serif of the "S", the crossbars of the "H", "A", and "F", and the upper bar of the "E". The subject matter, composition approach, palette, and signature are all quite different from any known works of Frederick F. Schafer, and the inscribed date of 1917 is much later than any of his known work. Nothing else has been discovered about this other Schafer. |
For reference, at the left is an image of the painting, and to the right is a detail showing the signature inscription.
|The painting at the left bears the highly stylized and florid signature "Schafer" shown at the right. The subject matter, composition approach, palette, brushwork, and signature are all quite different from any known works of Frederick F. Schafer. Nothing else has been discovered about this artist.|
