Commentary

This drawing is obviously a means to an end, and not intended as a final work. The darker pencil lines indicate changes from the contours of the original Conté crayon sketch. The image does not correspond to any known Trego works. Judging by the base on which the figure stands, it may have been a sketch for a monument.

Provenance

Obtained from the artist or the artist’s estate by Walter E. Baum. It passed to Baum’s son, Robert “Bert” Baum, who sold it to the current owner.

Exhibitions

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."

Condition

The drawing is mounted on masonite and framed under glass. It appears to be in very good condition.
