#291. Woods at Chevy Chase, Washington DC.

  26 x 36, oil on panel. "Gilbert Munger" lower left. Offered as lot 86 (not illustrated) at the American Art Galleries, New York, auction of 14-15 January 1920 as the property of a private collector and several estates. The catalog describes the painting this way:
On the right, crowning a hillside which slopes leftward and toward the foreground, dense trees at the corner of a wood raise rounded tops of deep green leafage toward a blue sky laden with gray clouds. Tops catch the sunshine, which spots the grassy foreground in front of shadows of the lower, nearer trees. Here two figures are standing, and in the lower foreground the edge of a pool comes into view. At left, distant rolling hills in sunshine.
This description and size does not mach any other known pictures.
