William T. Trego: Catalogue Raisonne

I. First Works in Detroit, 1878-1879

While living in Detroit and training as an apprentice in the studio of his father, artist Jonathan K. Trego, William Trego exhibited his art work in public for the first time. His drawings and paintings were very well received and he won several prizes. The Detroit Free Press took a keen interest in his work and frequently commented on it. “This youth gives promise of talent which will make his name known among the artists of America,” the newspaper predicted in 1879. They were right.
