Photo credit: Owner's photograph, 2009
Medium: oil on canvas
Size: 20 x 36 in (51 x 91 cm)
Inscription: signed l/l, not legible in photograph
Verso: said to be no inscription
Provenance: Offered by 1974 by Witherspoon Art Gallery and Frame Shop Lafayette, California, inventory #C2805, and sold in "the late 1970s" to private collection, San Anselmo, California, transferred in the family to private collection, San Francisco.
Citations: Inventory of American Paintings…, record 61140350; personal communication with the owner, 2009.
Site: Unidentified, but the profile of the mountain does resemble that of Mount Rainier. Compare with [Sunset effect on Mount Rainier].
Identification: Title as given in the Inventory of American Paintings… listing. Although that listing does not include a photograph, the description, title, provenance, and size match, and this is the only painting of this size reported by Witherspoon to the Inventory of American Paintings…, so this is probably the same painting.
In index(es): Title list, unidentified mountain scenes
