This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biography was written and submitted July 2009 by the granddaughter of the artist.

Eleanore Maurice lived a very long and full life.  She was an independent woman who worked and lived in New Jersey.  She was an artist who represented many different styles of art in her oils, watercolors, pencil drawings and collages. Her subjects include landscapes, flowers and flower markets, people, animals, seascapes waterfronts, farms and farm workers.  Her inspiration came from traveling throughout the world.

Named for her mother, she was born Eleanore Bond Ingersoll on September 5, 1901 in East Orange, New Jersey.  Her parents were of the 'well to do'.  Her mother was Eleanore Bond Ingersoll, and her father was Charles H. Ingersoll, one of the inventors of the dollar pocket watch and a politician in the early 1900's.

As a child she studied at the Beard School for Girls in New Jersey and later went to the Art Students League in New York City.  In the 1920's, she worked at Hattie Carnegie's as a designer and seamstress.  For 12 years she worked as an independent woman.

In 1934, she married Raymond Maurice and started a family.  After taking up residence in Montclair, NJ, she started her painting career from her home studio. For thirty years she sailed around the world in search of inspiration.  During her travels to Africa, Europe, South America and the Caribbean as well as her homeland, she gave demonstrations while on shipboard.  She met many people and saw many locations that were not known for tourism.  Her artwork represents the many people and places that she loved.

While at home she juried art shows, demonstrations for various groups, and private lessons in her studio.  She accumulated over one-hundred awards and held numerous memberships.
