Oenslager Mystery Rendering
In November 1997, this rendering was
found in the property shop at the Rochester Civic Theatre in Rochester,
Minnesota. No one had any idea about how the rendering got to
Rochester, Minnesota. It was given as a gift to guest scenic designer
Ann Gumpper, who recognized the historical and artistic importance
of the piece.
There are no indentifying marks on
the rendering other than the scale 1/2"=1' in the lower left
hand corner and the USAA seal and Oenslager's signature in the
lower right hand corner.
The rendering is assumably a backdrop
of birch trees along a river bank. An overturned rowboat is at
the bottom center of the drop.
Can you help us identify what production
this rendering came from?
