#306. Barbizon Landscape.   28.5 x 36.5, probably oil on canvas. Probably signed "Gilbert Munger". Owned by the geologist Clarence King, who probably obtained it directly from the artist. Sold in the auction of King's estate on March 12 & 13, 1903 at Mendelssohn Hall, New York, as lot 91 (not illustrated). A penciled note in the catalog lists the buyer as T. R. Ball, who is noted to have paid $110.

While the catalog offers no image, the description suggests that this painting is very similar to #78, #l38, and #305. To wit:

Gilbert Munger    91 -- Landscape    A small pool in rough country with great clumps of overhanging trees on either side, showing between them a view over flat country toward the glowing sky and the distant horizon. The foreground is mostly in shadow. Cattle drinking in the pool and a boat with a single figure in it give a touch of life to the otherwise deserted landscape.    Height, 28.5 inches; length 36.5 inches.
