This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Gustav Trois (1913-2002)

Obituary April 16, 2002:
Gustav Trois, 85, an artist who taught several generations of students at his Montgomery County studio and through the Montgomery County school system's adult education program, died of a lung ailment April 3 at his home in Silver Spring.  Mr. Trois created watercolors, etchings and sketches.  His work often depicted Washington history but also included ideas gathered during his frequent travels to Europe.

Some of his work joined the permanent collections of the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the Smithsonian Institution and the private collections of J. Edgar Hoover, Ethel Barrymore and Jack Benny.

He also wrote about the arts for several small, local publications.

Mr. Trois was born in New York and raised in Washington.  He attended the Corcoran School of Art and studied under Richard Lahey, the late principal emeritus of the school.  By age 18, he had had about 300 drawings published in The Washington Post's youth section.  He illustrated a weekly column called "Know Your Washington," about buildings and monuments of note.

He served in the Army in Europe during World War II in a topographic unit.  He also painted murals in officers1 clubs.

He told the local monthly publication Art Reporter that during the war, he sketched a portrait of Gen. George S. Patton Jr. and gave it to the general in return for his autograph.  He found the general to be "an absolutely delightful man."

After the war, Mr. Trois spent about a year in the Army Map Service before devoting himself to teaching and painting.

He was a founder of the Montgomery County Art Association and the Artists Mart in Georgetown.

He leaves no immediate survivors.
