William T. Trego: Catalogue Raisonne

V. Portraits, 1880-1904

While his father, Jonathan, was well known for his portraits, William Trego did not turn to this genre until later in his career when he needed a means of supplementing his income. While most of his formal portraits seem to be of family and friends, there is likely a gap in our knowledge of his portrait work. Photographs taken in his studio in 1893 and 1901 show sketches on the walls and finished works standing in the corners that suggest a higher volume of portraiture than is documented.
