#128. The Seine at St. Cloud.

  8.5 x 14.5, oil on panel. Signed. Sold for £350 at Christie's London auction of 22 October 1976, lot 53. Not illustrated in the catalog or Christie's files, but the catalog states: "Signed and title inscribed on an old label on the reverse." Dimensions are from the Christie's catalog.

In June of 2021 a German collector reported his Munger painting "The Seine at St. Cloud" to this website. It is oil on board, signature lower left, with a label on the back in Munger's hand stating: "No 9. The Seine at St-Cloud Gilbert Munger." The collector gives the size as 23 x 37 cm, which is 9 x 14.5 inches. These are all close enough matches to the Christie's catalog description that they are very likely to be the same painting. The current owner bought the painting in 2020 from a collector in Bielefeld who had bought it in 2015 at an antiques market in Hanover. The painting was conserved by Stephan Kokerbeck in Bielefeld in 2016.
