[photo] [Mount Shasta, California] (sketch 2, attributed)

Medium: oil on canvas (appears to be laid down on board)
Size: 12 x 10 in (30 x 25 cm)
Inscription: bears signature l/r "Schafer" without preceding initial, in what appears to be the artist's characteristic block letter hand.
Provenance: Sold 6 May 2012 for $410 by Michaan's Auctions by the Bay, Inc., Alameda, California, as lot 83 in Estate Auction.
Reproductions: Michaan's Auctions by the Bay, Inc. sale catalog.
Note: A roughly finished field sketch with an unusual signature. Although the signature is unusual, it does appear to be in Schafer's hand, and the rest of the painting is typical of his sketches, so the attribution seems secure.
Identification: Assigned, descriptive title, based on paintings of the same scene that were titled by the artist.
In index(es): Title list, Mount Shasta and Shastina, sketches, paintings probably attributable to Schafer
