#53. Venetian Scene. 39 x 56, oil on canvas. "Gilbert Munger 1895" lower left.
The date indicates that this was painted after Munger returned to the US, but the scene is clearly in Venice. This painting hung in living room of Tweed Hall, Duluth MN, as late as the 1970s. It was sold at a Duluth Art Institute auction in 1990 to Owens Yacht Sales in Duluth, who then sold it in 2009 to William Shipley of Duluth, who auctioned it for $13,000 + 25% at the Doyle New York auction of 10 Nov 2010, Lot #212.
