The Times was finally able to make its overdue visit to Edward Troye’s burial site today, and is pleased to share the following photos from Georgetown Cemetery. The Troye monument pictured here was erected in the artist’s memory by his friend and former patron James A. Grinstead of Lexington.
Grinstead was Troye’s last patron, for the artist’s portrait of two-year-old Waverly, painted in September 1872 for Grinstead, was his final work. Read more about Waverly and Troye’s career in the Times’ article, “Edward Troye: America’s Equine Artist,” which was featured in the January/February 2015 issue of American Racehorse magazine [article begins on numbered page 26.]
