Profile Portrait of Martha Anders Dowlin, 1904
Courtesy of Roger Dowlin
Oil on canvas, 20 x 14 inches
Signed and dated ll: “Wm. T. Trego, 1904
Estate of Roger Dowlin
This sketch was likely part of the process by which Trego
arrived at the full face finished portrait of his friend “Mattie” Dowlin in
1904. Unlike the final version, which flattered her, this profile study is
straightforward and literal.
The painting was obtained from the artist by Martha Anders
Dowlin and passed directly to her grandson. It is currently held by his estate.
The painting is in good condition, though it
would benefit from a cleaning.
