A Survey of Women Artists Working in California, 1860-1960

huffington-post-logoJohn Seed of the Huffington Post reviewed “Emerging from the Shadows” and awarded it their highest rating–five Rembrandts (stars)

In his Arts & Culture review, Seed states:

“This invaluable four volume set fills huge gaps in the history of California art. It’s resurrection of the careers of notable and accomplished women artists — both modernists and realists — is overdue and to be applauded. Over 2,000 images offer one revelation after another. This set is a must for museum libraries, reference libraries and dealers in California art.

This four-volume set presents the careers of 320 women artists working in California as well as throughout the United States, Mexico and Europe. Their art encompasses a broad range of styles—from the realism of the nineteenth century to the modernism of the twentieth. The works represented are in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, illustration and print-making. The author is conservator and art historian Maurine St. Gaudens, the granddaughter of noted San Francisco jeweler, Maurice Saint-Gaudens, and the third-cousin of the sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens.”
