#72. Waterfall and Valley, Yosemite. 19.5 x 27, oil on cardboard. "Gilbert Munger" lower left. The view is of Bridal Veil Falls from below. Almost identical to painting #96. This pair of paintings shows Munger's amazing ability to duplicate a painting. Sold at Christie's London (King Street) auction of 13 Feb 1970, lot 56, for $605 to the London dealer Frank T. Sabin, who transferred it to Kennedy Galleries, New York, in Mar 1970. See painting #40 for the pre-1970 provenance. From Kennedy Galleries in 1970 to a private collection in Massachusetts. IAP 61022195. See Kennedy Quarterly 10, 1, 1970, p. 11. Image from that plate.
