#185. El Capitan. 20 x 28, oil on canvas, relined with new stretchers. "Gilbert Munger 1876" lower right. This painting is likely a New York City studio rendition of a sketch from Yosemite. It was bought from a Washington, D.C., art dealer and is part of the collection of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Davies of New Canaan, CT. The same pale white treatment of El Capitan appears in paintings #106 and #200. Image from photo provided by Thomas Davies.
