This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known as a painter of landscapes and flowers, George Munn worked almost exclusively in Brittany and Normandy. Born August 21, 1851, in Utica, New York, he too his first art education with Charles Caverly, the sculptor. Later he studied at the schools of the National Academy in New York. Leaving the United States for England, he entered the art school at South Kensington where he was awarded a gold medal in sculpture. In 1873 he entered the Royal Academy School where he soon took a silver medal in modeling.

About this time Munn discovered painting and fell upon this new venture with great enthusiasm. Feeling that he could gain more elsewhere, he left Britain and took up his studies at the Julian Academy and Muncaczy's studio's in Paris. Upon his return and the subsequent exhibition of his work in London, beginning in 1875 at the Royal Academy, his work attracted the attention of George Frederick Watts, who induced Munn to come to work for him. This arrangement lasted a number of years to the great benefit of Munn. The artist exhibited extensively in Britain between 1875 and 1886. In addition to the Royal Academy, his pictures were to be found at the Grosvenor Gallery, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, the Society of British Artists and other local venues.

He married Margaret Crosby in 1900, and it was she who later prepared an affectionate book on his life and art. He died February 10, 1907 in New York City.

J. Forbes-Robertson, a fellow student and artist, wrote of his friend and his work: " Munn knew how to represent a simple piece of natural landscape, seizing its charm and recording it for the permanent possession of those before whose eyes it would never appear again in reality."
