[photo] Evening near New Jersey

Date: not dated, probably between 1876 and 1880
Medium: oil on canvas
Size: not reported
Inscription: l/l "FSchafer", in the artist's characteristic block-letter hand, initials conjoined in a monogram
Verso: "Evening near New Jersey.", in the artist's characteristic block-letter hand
Provenance: In private collection, northern California, by descent to private collection, western Oregon, in 2004.
Citations: Personal communication with the owner, 2004.
Site: The title word "Near" suggests that the site is actually in New York, perhaps on the Hackensack River.
Note: The probable date range is based on the subject matter being an eastern U.S. scene, Schafer's assumed arrival year in the U.S. in 1876, his last known trip to the east coast in 1879, and the paucity of exhibited east coast scenes after 1880.
Identification: Title from the verso inscription.
In index(es): Title list, cabins, farmhouses, and similar structures, eastern United States scenes, moonlight nocturnes and other scenes showing the moon
