Charcoal drawing on paper, irregular dimensions
Inscribed ll: “Trego” but not in Trego's hand
Private Collection


The name “Trego” appears on the piece, but not in the artist’s usual script. It may have been written there by Walter Baum to identify the work as that of his mentor. It is likely a study that Trego did while at the Pennsylvania Academy.


The 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 current owner.


The paper is discolored and brittle. There are losses along the margins.
