Gilbert Munger (1837-1903) achieved artistic success by depicting recently discovered western landscapes with an accuracy and style admired by scientists and connoisseurs. By the 1870s his talent and keen eye had carried him to the top of the New York and San Francisco art markets. This landmark study reestablishes the artist’s place in the history of American landscape painting. His early works are painted in the realistic style of the Hudson River School, while his later pictures are suffused with the atmosphere and color of J. M. W. Turner, or the rural repose and historic air of Barbizon.

Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Tweed Museum of Art.

Stunning late 19th-century American and European landscapes in the “American Sublime” tradition!
