Maurine St. Gaudens
Maurine St. Gaudens grew up surrounded by art and creativity. She is the granddaughter of noted San Francisco jeweler, Maurice Saint-Gaudens, and the third-cousin of the esteemed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Maurine’s artistic background led to her career as a respected Fine Arts conservator and the establishment of the Maurine St. Gaudens Studio in Pasadena, California. In conjunction with her professional work as a Fine Arts Conservator, Maurine has served as guest curator and consultant for numerous art exhibitions throughout Southern California and as an adviser and manager for the estates of various artists.
Through years of experience Maurine has established a reputation for recognizing and acknowledging unknown artists, particularly women artists, in her exhibitions. Her work as a historian, and her perseverance in researching unknown artists, has brought Maurine to her most recent publication Emerging from the Shadows: A Survey of Women Artists Working in California, 1860-1960.
Maurine has previously published the book Sam Hyde Harris 1889-1977, A Retrospective: A Pictorial Biography of His Life and Work—a comprehensive presentation on the influential Early California artist, Sam Hyde Harris. In addition, Maurine has been a frequent contributor to numerous art publications and articles.
