Note: 1. The lack of finish suggests that this is a field sketch rather than a studio painting; the rounded sketch hand of the signature supports this conjecture. 2. It is likely that this painting was one that appeared in Schafer's 1888 Chicago exhibition of 157 paintings, as reported in (Chicago) The Sunday Inter Ocean, June 3 and 10, 1888.
