[photo] [Scene near Salt Lake, UT]

Date: said to be 1904
Medium: oil on canvas
Size: 18 x 13 in
Inscription: l/l "F.S."
Verso: said to be signed and dated "1904" on the frame and the canvas.
Provenance: With Pacific Galleries, Seattle, WA, 16 May 2007
Reproductions: 16 May 2007 sale catalog 705, lot 672
Attribution: Said to be by Fred Swanwell (1844-1916). Since the verso signatures are not shown, it is not clear whether they, too, are "F.S." or are the artist's full name. If they, too, are "F.S." then the attribution to Fred Swanwell may be a guess. However, both the style and the recto inscription are quite similar to other Swanwell paintings. Other paintings, similarly signed, can be found in the discussion of Signatures with initials only.
