#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. 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.
