#263. Portrait of Adah White.   22 x 18, Oil on board. "Gilbert Munger 1898" lower left. This is a portrait of Adah White at age ten, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William J. White of Cleveland. Munger was a guest at the White home in the 1890s and in a letter of 1902 reports: "When last in Cleveland I made $5000.00 in clear profit in 5 months painting portraits and refused several other orders." This one, however, is likely a hostess present to the Whites. The White's great granddaughter inherited the painting and when she died recently it went to her friend. Note the Barbizon-style background landscape. Image from the owner's email.
