Frederick Ferdinand Schafer Painting Catalog

What's new: Site and catalog status as of February 2017

[construction icon]


This web site is publicly available and indexed by major search engines. The catalog contents are under continual revision. The catalog currently contains records of 718 adequately documented paintings by Frederick Ferdinand Schafer, plus 103 paintings said to be by Schafer but that report only limited information such as their size and medium, so their attribution has not been evaluated. There is also a list of 197 titles of paintings for which only the title has been found, for example, in a nineteenth century auction catalog or newspaper clipping. Finally, added for comparison are records of 11 paintings by other artists who have been or sometimes are confused with Frederick Schafer and 37 paintings whose claimed attribution to Schafer can be questioned.

Images are included for all but 20 of the 718 adequately documented paintings. About half of those missing images have been located but are not currently posted, pending receipt of permission.
