Maximilian (Max) Schneiderhahn was a liturgical artist and sculptor who lived and worked in St. Louis, Missouri at the turn of the century. We (Jerome Gaynor and Jim Frazier) have started a project to document Max's life and his art. Alphonse Schneiderhahn (his son) also was a religious artist and we hope to pick up his work along the way.
If you possess art by these men, please contact us. We'd like to photograph it at your convenience. We'd also like to photograph the venue where the piece is displayed, if it's a public space.
Thank you to everyone who has assisted us in the project.
In some cases, we could not confirm the work was by Maximilian or Alphonse, usually by either not being able to get close enough to the art or the signature just not being visible. But either the written or oral history of the institution or family is good enough for us in this undertaking. If a signature was inspected, this has been noted.
All of the photographs here, unless otherwise noted, were taken by Jim Frazier, and are copyrighted by him, all rights reserved, in the year they were posted.
