#149. Eocene Bluffs - Green River - Wyoming.   6 x 8.5, chromolithograph. Title on plate. This picture is Plate I in Clarence King's Systematic Geology, published in 1878 as part of the record of his Geological Survey of the 40th Parallel, 1867-1872. The plate is based on a sketch by Gilbert Munger. He was guest artist on the survey in 1869 and 1870. In all, ten chromos by Munger are used in the book. Go to this site page for more complete information about them and a display of all ten. The rock tower resembles that in the background of painting #123. The location is near Green River City WY where the railroad crosses the Green River. The San Francisco Daily Evening Bulletin describes a Munger painting of the same scene (see the Document Archive entry for 1872 Aug 10). QFD Pl.41. Tweed 2003 Exhibition n.40. Image is a direct scan of the plate.
