Saint-Gaudens Biography

In Rome, Saint-Gaudens met other artists and acquired a few wealthy patrons for whom he made neoclassically styled portrait heads. This marked the beginning of the sculptor's association with a widening circle of friends and patrons through whom his career would later ascend. In Rome, Saint-Gaudens also met his future wife, Augusta Homer, a distant cousin of the American painter Winslow Homer. Saint-Gaudens carved her a cameo ring for their engagement six months later.
