Verso: n.v. (lined)
Provenance: In collection of George and Helen High; by gift to The California Historical Society, 1980 (public).
Citations: California Historical Society accession #80-17-1-FA
Attribution: Since the painting is unsigned, the attribution is problematic. The composition, brushwork and palette are all typical of Schafer's work, and there are no obvious countersigns.
Description: A pair of large live oak trees stand above thick brush on the left bank of a river against a blue sky that has a few sunset-tinged clouds. A path along the left bank winds through wildflowers. In the distance on the right two tall broadleaf trees are abstractly silhouetted against the sky. (From the painting, 9 December 1998.)
In index(es): Title list, pastoral and rural scenes, paintings currently held in museums and public collections, paintings probably attributable to Schafer
