#181. Lake Marian, Humboldt Mts. 10 x 20, oil on canvas. "Gilbert Munger 1871" lower right; "Lake Marian, Humboldt Mts" reverse.
This painting closely matches Plate II in Systematic Geology (see #145). The frame shows a brass plaque with "Lake Marian, Humboldt Mts, Gilbert Munger". An envelope attached to the back contain the remnants of a paper label with "1871 No. 27". This is the only Munger "Lake Marian" painting that has come down to us still associated with the correct title. From a dealer in Minneapolis MN to a private collection in about 1975.
