#304. Lake in the Mountains, Humboldt Nevada.   14 x 20, probably oil on canvas. No signature information. Owned by the geologist Clarence King, who probably obtained it directly from the artist. Sold in the auction of King's estate on March 12 & 13, 1903 at Mendelssohn Hall, New York City, as lot 89. A penciled note in the catalog lists the buyer as W. H. Young, who is noted to have paid $60. The note also identifies the artist as "Gilbert Munger."

While the catalog offers no image, the description is a perfect match for the five other known paintings by Munger of "Lake Marian" in this section of the web site. To wit:

"This is a view down upon a small lake which is entirely enclosed by mountain slopes, some of them bare, and others with scattered trees. There is snow on the ground, and, with the exception of a shadow upon the trees, the snow-covered foreground and part of the lake, the landscape is in full sunlight."
The Humboldt Mountains are now named the Ruby Mountains and their Lake Marian is now named Overland Lake. No image known.
