#255. The Old House. 11 x 8, oil on canvas. Signed. This painting was offered in an estate disposal aution as EBay item # 2602033408955 on 24 Jan 2008, buy-it-now price $1,100; no bids. The lot included a copy of the book Memoir, Gilbert Munger, Landscape Artist, 1836-1903, The De Vinne Press, NYC, 1904. This EBay item was listed as located in Poplar WI, which is 25 miles from Duluth MN. Roger Munger, Gilbert's brother, was a town father and brought back many paintings from Gilbert's Washington DC studio after he died. Many have remained in the Duluth area. Painting #224 shows the same mill building. My best guess is that the mill was in the countryside accessible from Washington DC. Image from EBay website.
