Emerging from the Shadows:
A Survey of Women Artists Working in California, 1860–1960 (4 Volumes)
Maurine St. Gaudens
• More than 2,000 images trace the 100-year history of 320 women artists in California
• Features artworks from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century, as well as rare historical photographs
• Includes tantalizing biographies of the artists, many previously undiscovered, and newly discovered works of art
This four-volume set presents, with more than 2,000 images, the careers of 320 California-based women
artists over the course of a century. Their work encompasses a broad range of styles—from the realism of
the nineteenth century to the modernism of the twentieth—and of media, including painting, sculpture,
drawing, and print-making. While some of the profiled artists are already well known, others have been
previously ignored or largely forgotten. Yet all had serious careers as artists: they studied, exhibited, and won
awards. These women were trailblazers, each one essential to the momentum of a movement that opened
the door for heartfelt expression and equality. Much of the information and many of the images in the book
have never before been published. Artists are presented alphabetically; also included are several essays and
additional primary sources that put the artists’ work in context.
As a historian, scholar, and proponent of the arts,
Maurine St. Gaudens
has dedicated herself to the pursuit
and recognition of artists. She is a fine arts conservator and has curated numerous exhibitions.
