Charcoal drawing on paper, irregular dimensions
at left: “W. T. Trego”
may be one of Trego’s sketches from the Pennsylvania Academy,
in which case the subject may have been one of his fellow students.
sketch is one of several rescued by Walter E. Baum from Trego’s studio after
his death. It passed to Baum’s son, Robert “Bert” Baum, and from him to the
Doylestown, Pennsylvania, James A. Michener Art Museum, June 3-Oct 2, 2011: "So Bravely and So Well: The Life and Art of William T. Trego."
The paper is discolored and brittle, and there
have been some losses along the edges.
