#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 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 'g' is as it appears.) The owner suggests that the painting looks finished (no sketch lines, varnished, no unpainted areas). Image from owner's email.
