Only about one out of ten paintings by Schafer bears a date. The reason for the lack of dates is not known, but it may have been simply a concern that dated paintings that are not immediately sold become harder to sell because it is obvious that they have been passed over by other buyers. This index lists all those paintings that have an inscribed date. An asterisk indicates a reported inscription that has not been verified. This index omits a few paintings that are said to have a known date, but for which the basis of that date is unknown. It also omits a handful of paintings for which other records provide a date.
