#172. Vertical Landscape with Trees and Stream. 56.5 x 43.5, oil on canvas. Unsigned.
For five other versions of this scene see #88, #99, #165, #232, and #256. One of them has a date of 1890 so the scene is certainly French, even though this one is date is dated after Munger returned to the U.S. The stretcher shows in pencil: "Painted by Gildert Munger. 1899. An unfinished painting" (The 'd' instead of a 'b' is as it appears.) The owner suggests that the painting looks finished (no sketch lines, varnished, no unpainted areas).
