#15. Cazenovia Wheat (Corn) Field. 34 x 58, oil on canvas, restored in 1980. "Gilbert Munger" lower left. After returning to America from Europe, Munger painted in this area of upper New York State with his artist friend Dwight Williams of Cazenovia in the fall of 1900. The picture actually appears to depict a corn field. An "EH Friedrichs ... 140 Sullivan St., New York" stamp on the back dates the canvas in the 1890s. Gift from a Munger relative in 1960 to the Tweed Museum of Art, Univ. of Minnesota Duluth. IAP 25680073. QFD 68. See American Painting at the Tweed Museum of Art by Sweeney, 1982, p. 19. Image from that plate.
