William T. Trego: Catalogue Raisonne

VIII. Later Military Works, 1895-1900

Trego’s later military works are not as well documented as those done in the 1880s. We know that in the last half of the 1890s he devoted more time to portraits, genre paintings, illustration work, and teaching as he struggled with financial problems. However, he did continue to paint military subjects until c. 1900 when his disappointment at not being permitted to exhibit The Rescue of the Colors caused him to give up on the genre completely. Circumstantial evidence suggests that several of the works known only by fleeting references or old photographs date from this period of time.
