#19. Duluth 1871.   25 x 50, oil on canvas. "Gilbert Munger 1871" lower left. The view is of the harbor and Mississippi Point sand spit of Duluth MN, looking south from downtown. The Duluth News Tribune of 3 Sep 1917 reports this painting being given to the City of Duluth by Luther Mendenhall, who was the first President of the Duluth Library Association. A condition of the gift was that it be displayed at the Duluth Public Library, where it still hangs. Check out the article for 17 Jun 1911 for the fascinating history of this painting. #86 is a larger version of this scene. The back shows a label from the 1960 Munger exhibition at the Tweed Museum of Art, Univ. of Minnesota Duluth. IAP 83850031. See Painting and Sculpture in Minnesota by Rena Coen, Univ. of Minnesota, 1976, p.68. See also J.
