Saint-Gaudens Biography
 

1888 - 1897 Art Students League

For the next decade Saint-Gaudens had a commission or deadline every year. Despite his hectic schedule, work on two continents, and summers committed to the country house in Cornish, New Hampshire, which he named Aspet after his father's birthplace and where he built a barn studio, Saint-Gaudens taught students. As a faculty member at the Art Students League in New York City he emphasized drawing in charcoal and understanding anatomy.
