Commentary: William I. Shinn commissioned Schoonover to do a ‘decoration’ for his home. Together they chose the subject entitled ‘Western Migration – 1840’ which would be Indians watching a wagon train. The artist worked on it in December, 1937. About the experience he notes, , “Dec. 23 – Mr. Shinn in to see. Quite keen – Dec. 24 = Framed, fitted and drawing delivered to Mr. Shinn-” (day books).
Provenance: Artist commissioned by William I. Shinn, Wilmington, Delaware (December 24, 1937); private collection
