Provenance: In "Private Collection, Brentwood, California"; sold 14 September 2008 for $1920 by Bonhams & Butterfields, San Francisco, as lot 3043 in sale 16383.

Note: 1. The 13 September 2008 sale catalog incorrectly identifies the painting with [Yosemite Valley from Union Point], a similar painting in the Schafer catalog. 2. A painting with almost the same title (it omits the words "Looking South") was offered as lot 54 on page 5 of the catalog of a 17 November 1885 auction in San Francisco but there is not enough information in that catalog to either include or exclude the possibility that it is this painting.
Identification: Title from the verso inscription.
