#114. Canal in Venice.   22 x 32, oil on canvas. "Gilbert Munger 18(??)" lower left. One pencil inscription on a stretcher that is difficult to read might say: "1924 New York." The brackets joining the stretcher bars together at the corners are embossed with: "PAT'D FEB. 13 1883 JUNE 16 1885 A.D.S." The date with the signature is either 1896, 1898, 1876, or 1878, with 1898 looking most probable. The 1870s dates are inconsistent with what we know of Munger's movements and the patent stamps on the brackets. Sold for $700 + 10% at Weschler's Washington D.C. sale of 1 Oct 1988, lot 108. Gift from Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bentley Sr. to the Brenau University Permanent Collection, Gainesville GA, in 1992. Digital image provided by Brenau University.
