#1. Lake Marian, Humboldt Range, Nevada. 11 x 22, oil on canvas, relined. "Gilbert Munger" lower right. This painting was sold by Montrose Galleries, Fredericksburg VA, in Oct 1992. It closely matches Plate II in Systematic Geology (see #145), which is based on a Munger sketch. The painting title comes from that plate. See Kennedy Quarterly 6, 2, 1966, p.78 & also the ad in American Art Review V, 1 (Spring 1992), p.74. IAP 78040003. This St.Louis Co.
