Information about this image:
Original: Scanned copy from Published Friday, 3 July 1885 in the (Victoria, British Columbia) The Daily Colonist XLIV, 18, page 2, column 5. Initially appeared 1 July 1885 on page 2, column 5.
Adjustments: Image digitally contrast-enhanced and sharpened. Image contains ICC color profile.
Note: (1) The artist is referred to as "Prof. Schaffer" but from comments in related clippings, painting titles, and reports of other visits to Pacific Coast cities by the artist in the summer of 1885 there is no question that it is Frederick Ferdinand Schafer. (2) This is one of at least four newspaper notices and advertisements about this sale. (3) Titles of at least 20 of the 60 lots in this catalog also appear in the catalog for an auction sale in San Francisco on 17 November 1885 and some appear a third time in the catalog for an auction sale in Salt Lake City on 24 May 1886. These titles are probably of paintings that failed to sell and were carried over from one auction to the next.
