Biography Augusta Fisher Homer (Gussie) Saint-Gaudens
Augusta Fisher Homer Saint-Gaudens (1848-1926) was born in Roxbury (Boston), Massachusetts, the daughter of Thomas Johnston and Elizabeth Fisher Homer. In 1874, while studying painting in Rome, she met Saint-Gaudens. Her parents' consent to the marriage was given when Saint-Gaudens received the commission for the Farragut Monument in December 1876, and they were married in Roxbury on June 4, 1877.
The couple departed for Europe on June 6. Augusta's chronic and increasing deafness, as well as her more formal habits, kept her somewhat to the side of the studio hustle and bustle. However, in the sculptor's later years Augusta devoted herself to managing the studio and handling correspondence.
