Main article: "Cornish Art Colony
Diagnosed with cancer in 1900, Saint-Gaudens decided to live at his Federal house with barn-studio set in the handsome gardens he had made, where he and his family had been spending summers since 1885, in "Cornish, New Hampshire – though not in retirement. Despite waning energy, he continued to work, producing a steady stream of reliefs and public sculpture. In 1904, he was one of the first seven chosen for membership in the "American Academy of Arts and Letters. That same year the large studio burned, with the irreplaceable loss of the sculptor's correspondence, his sketch books, and many works in progress.
The "Cornish Art Colony Saint-Gaudens and his brother Louis attracted made for a dynamic social and creative environment. The most famous included painters "Maxfield Parrish and "Kenyon Cox, architect and garden designer "Charles A. Platt, and sculptor "Paul Manship. Included were painters "Thomas Dewing, "George de Forest Brush, dramatist "Percy MacKaye, the American novelist "Winston Churchill, and the sculptor "Louis St. Gaudens, Augustus' brother. After his death in 1907 it slowly dissipated. His house and gardens are now preserved as the "Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site.
Saint-Gaudens was elected a member of the "American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1896. In 1901, the French government made him an "Officier de la Légion d'honneur. In 1920, Saint-Gaudens was posthumously elected to the "Hall of Fame for Great Americans. In 1940, his image appeared on a U.S. "postage stamp in the "Famous Americans" series.
Saint-Gaudens and his wife figure prominently in the 2011 book "The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris by historian "David McCullough. In interviews upon the book's release, McCullough said the letters of Augusta Saint-Gaudens to her friends and family in the United States were among the richest primary sources he discovered in years of research into the lives of the American community in Paris in the late 19th century.
New York City's PS40 is named after Saint-Gaudens.
