#318. Near Bougival. 12.5 x 21, oil on wood panel. No signature visible on the front. This painting depicts the same location as #195. Stamped on the back is: "E. Mary et fils / 26, rue Cleptai / Paris". On a paper label in Munger's handwriting is: "Pres: Bougival / Gilbert Munger /35, Boulevard des Capucines / Paris". These labels mean that Munger painted this while living in Paris from 1886 to 1893. It was purchased from an Italian art dealer in the 20th C. by Giuseppe Ottavio Eliseo. Upon his death at Campobasso in Southern Italy in 1996, his entire art collection was donated to Ministry of Culture. This painting ended up at the Museo Pistilli in Campabasso.
