#17. Two Trees. 44 x 36, oil on canvas. "Gilbert Munger 1901" lower left. The date is after Munger returned to the U.S. but the style is Barbizon and the painting probably is based on a sketch done in France. Note that the painting #34 shows the same two trees. And painting #308 is the same two trees in winter, with the image reversed horizontally. See the entry for that painting for a possible explanation. At Tweed Museum of Art, Univ. of Minnesota Duluth, since 1978. IAP 25680122. QFD Pl.73. Tweed 2003 Exhibition n.52. See American Painting at the Tweed Museum of Art by Sweeney, 1982, p.69. Image from museum's transparency.
