Emeritus Professor Curates William Trego Exhibit

Montgomery County Community College Emeritus Professor of History Joseph Eckhardt is the curator of the first-ever comprehensive exhibit of William T. Trego’s work, “So Bravely and So Well: The Life and Art of William T. Trego.” The exhibit is on display from now through Oct. 2 at the James A. Michener Museum, 138 S. Pine St. in Doylestown. Trego (1858-1909) is best known for his highly detailed battle scenes from the American Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War.

The exhibition is accompanied by the first-ever full-length biography of the artist and a fully-illustrated online catalogue raisonné, both written and compiled by Eckhardt. The book can be purchased online, and will soon be available in the College’s campus bookstores.
