Inscription: l/r "F. Scha…", remainder illegible in reproduction, said to be "F. Schafer"
Verso: said to be "Sunset at Lake Tahoe" on the stretcher

Reproductions: Bonhams & Butterfields 8 June 2004 sale catalog
Note: 1. The Bonhams & Butterfields catalog reports the size as 30 x 29 1/4 inches, but the photograph is not of a square painting. The proportions of the photograph suggest that the actual size is 30 x 20 inches. 2. The 20 July 1882 edition of the San Francisco Evening Bulletin, reported that a painting titled Sunset on Lake Tahoe sold in San Francisco for $15 but there is not enough information in that report to either include or exclude the possibility that it is this painting.
Identification: Title from the reported verso inscription
In index(es): Title list, lake cove scenes, Lake Tahoe and environs, sunset scenes
