    Description

    William Trego, "Bugle Call" or "Woodland Scene", oil on canvas, 9" x 12", framed in a period frame to an overall size of 16.5" x 19.5", signed lower right "W.T. Trego", the painting has a very old label on the back of the frame with the penciled inscription: "The Bugal [sic] Call/Artist William T. Tre...". The painting is pictured and listed in the James A. Michener Art Museum's Catalogue Raisonne of William T. Trego's works. The catalogue states, "This is an unusual work in that the title suggests a military subject and at first glance there appears to be none. However, there appears to be an encampment in the background with glimpses of white tents seen beyond the trees. The woodland scene anticipates many of the genre works Trego would do in his later years." The painting is in very good condition.

    The painting was exhibited at New York City, January 1884: American Art Association and Louisville, Kentucky, August 16-October 25, 1884: Louisville Industrial Exposition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
