#20. Evening on Cheat River. 9 x 12, oil on canvas. "Gilbert Munger" lower left. Labels on the back from A & S Fine Arts Inc, Yonkers NY, and Raydon Gallery, NYC. The later lists the title and the artist. A painting of this title was shown at the 1866 National Academy of design show in New York City. Cheat River is in West Virginia and was accessible via railroad from major east coast cities then. On the other hand, the painting does not look much like Cheat River topographically. Sold by Raydon Gallery in 1978 or later. Bought at an Wichita KS estate sale by Golden Hills Studio, an art restorer in Hannibal MO. Subsequently the painting was sold to a client. IAP 60940957.
