|Commentary:|| Frank Schoonover and David Reinhardt, Jr. were fishermen and friends. Circa 1930, they struck up a deal in which Schoonover traded this painting for a collection of Reinhardt’s fishing poles and equipment. |
In 1967, Reinhardt sold the painting to his son, David Reinhardt III. When he died it was inherited by his wife, Jane, the current owner.
