Vital Statistics

Oil on canvas, 21 x 17 inches
Signed and dated, lr: “Wm. T. Trego 1905”
Private Collection


The work bears some similarities to woodland scenes once painted by the artist’s father, Jonathan K. Trego. After his father’s death and his own decision to forgo further military history paintings, William Trego often painted in genres once associated with his father.


Obtained from the artist by a member of his cousin Howard Trego’s family, it has been passed down in the family ever since. The current owner is a great-great-grandchild of Howard Trego


The painting is in good condition, but the whole scene is dark, and the colors of the flowers are hard to see. It would benefit from cleaning.
