Can anyone ID these falls in Yosemite?

Asked by gailcalled (54522points) January 22nd, 2011

This is a nineteenth century American Luminist painting. An art dealer friend is trying to identify the falls themselves. Screen shot

I have a close-up shot but can email it only.

I didn’t look through all of them, but this website has pictures and descriptions of all the falls in Yosemite.

@crisw: Lovely and thanks. I will let my art dealer friend try to ID since he has better shots of the original painting. And he can struggle with the issue of artistic license.

I think it is Wagon Wheel Falls in Yosemite.

@marinelife: Thanks to you also. I’ll pass this info on.

My guess (since I can’t find a pic of Wagon Wheel Falls) is Vernal Falls.

I apparently forgot to mention that El Capitan is at the top left in the painting. It is not very clear, however.
