William T. Trego: Catalogue Raisonne

IX. Genre Works and Final Paintings, 1895-1908

Trego’s late genre and religious works display a range of styles, subjects, and levels of quality. Some, like Goldenrod and Aster, seem to have been done rather quickly and playfully. Others, like his first version of Madonna and Child, show the same care for effect and meticulous detail that characterized his best military paintings. He drew upon local residents and their animals as inspiration for some works and turned to great literature, the work of other contemporary artists, and even the paintings of his late father as inspiration for others. Taken together, these paintings present the image of an artist adrift with no particular focus to his work.
