Note: 1. Based on the rough brushwork, visible canvas texture, and small size, this painting may be a field sketch. 2. A painting with almost the same title was offered as lot 20 in the catalog of a July 1885 auction in Victoria, British Columbia but there is not enough information in that catalog to either include or exclude the possibility that it is the same painting.
