#321. Castle Park, Warwick. 21 x 29, oil on flat wood panel. "Gilbert Munger" lower left. Owned by a family in Hamberg, Germany, since the early 20th century, until sold to a collector in Wedel, Germany. No title or locale was known by the current owner. By referencing the Document Archive of this site and searching the web, we now can identify the painting as a view from Castle Park, Warwick England of the Warwick Castle, looking north. The painting is a very close match to contemporary photos on the web at https://www.ourwarwickshire.org.uk/content/catalogue_her/warwick-castle-park. The River Avon runs between the trees and the castle. In 1885 Munger exhibited No. 494 Castle Park, Warwick at the Royal Academy. Image from the owner's email.
