#153. Woman in a Garden Setting.   25 x 20, oil on canvas. "G. Munger" claimed lower left. Is this our Munger? A letter from Gilbert Munger to his friend James Cresap Sprigg, dated 19 January 1902, states: "When last in Cleveland, I made $5000.00 in clear profit in 5 months painting portraits and refused several other orders". But none of these portraits are know to art history researchers. Is this one of them? Sold for $750 at DuMouchelles Auctioneers, Detroit, sale of 16 May 1997, lot 2179. Image is a photocopy of auction catalog.
