[photo] [Lake Tahoe]

Medium: oil on canvas
Size: estimated to be 30 x 50 in (76 x 127 cm)
Inscription: Signed l/r "F. Schafer." in the artist's characteristic block-printing hand, underlined.
Verso: The back is covered. Said to be titled, including the words "Lake Tahoe".
Provenance: Acquired by private collection, northern Utah, probably after 1935; by descent in the family in 1974, 1995, 2012, and 2022 to private collection, Morgan, Utah.
Citations: Personal communication with the owner, 3 April 2022.
Site: Based on paintings of similar scenes, appears to be the shore of Lake Tahoe, though the combination of a right-side shore with large, snow-covered background mountains is unexpected.
Note: The size estimate is based on the apparent size of the stretcher bar.
Identification: Provisional title until evidence of the complete verso inscription can be obtained.
