William T. Trego: Catalogue Raisonne

IV. Works for publisher, George Barrie, 1892-1893

The biggest single commission for his paintings that Trego ever received was his work for Philadelphia publisher, George Barrie and Son, in 1892-93. Barrie was publishing a monumental book, The Army and Navy of the United States, and solicited illustrations from more than a dozen artists. The paintings were reproduced as photogravures, some of which were hand tinted. While the job brought Trego much needed income, it did nothing to advance his career since none of the works was ever exhibited publicly or critically reviewed.
