#303. Mount Ranier (sp).

  13 x 22, medium unknown. Signature status unknown. Listed as lot 12 (not illustrated) in the auction catalog for a sale on March 26, 27, and 28 of 1913. The sale, presented by the Fourth Ave Auction Rooms at 333 - 341 Fourth Ave, New York City, was titled: Catalog of Important Oil Paintings ... Collected by the Late Elizabeth St. John Matthews ... While we don't know what this painting looks like we can be certain that it is not one of the other Mount Rainier paintings in this catalog, as they are substantially larger. Mt. Rainier is a volcano in the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. A newspaper article of 20 Sep 1872 mentions that Munger was at Steilacoom (WA), a place which provides good views of Mt. Rainier.
