Size: 30 x 50 in (76 x 127 cm)
Inscription: l/r "F. Schafer" in the artist's characteristic block-letter hand
Verso: l/r "In the Roky Mountains Colorado" in the artist's characteristic block-letter hand. On upper stretcher bar, in pencil "Salt Lake"; in black ink "29".
Provenance: Sold February 2015 at an Idaho Falls, Idaho, garage sale; to private collection, Portland, Oregon; sold May 2015 as lot 245 for $2,975 by Mroczek Brothers Seattle Auction House, Seattle, Washington; offered October 2015 and again in February 2016 by eBay.
Note: A painting with this title (spelled correctly but omitting "Colorado") was exhibited in the Mechanics' Institute Nineteenth Industrial Exhibition in San Francisco but there is not enough information in that catalog to either include or exclude the possibility that it is the same painting.
Identification: Title from the artist's verso inscription, correcting the misspelling "Roky" to "Rocky". The (Mroczek Brothers Seattle Auction House catalog) also used the corrected spelling.
In index(es): Title list, unidentified mountain scenes
