#312. Falls on the St. Louis River. 21 x 28, oil on canvas, cut down. No signature.
This painting was bought along with #313 and #314 by a Minnesota collector at the November 2013 estate sale of Daniel Mann of Rushford MN that was run by Darr Auctions of Rushford. See the latter painting for a discussion of the possibly related earlier provenances. The stretcher is not original. "Munger" is written in pencil on the left and top stretcher bars. The signature may have been lost when the painting was cut down. Judging from the postcard shown at the right and Munger's known whereabouts, the painting depicts falls on the St. Louis River near Duluth MN. Thanks to Tom Trow of Minneapolis for noticing the similarity of the postcard and painting. Image from owner's email.
