Note: 1. This painting is one of several tropical scenes by Schafer, which were probably prepared to satisfy a demand for such paintings from San Francisco residents who came from the east via a Central American overland route. 2. Paintings with this title have appeared in at least two 19th century auction catalogs but without enough information to either include or exclude the possibility that one of them is this painting. See Paintings known only by title for details.
