Norman St. Clair was a watercolorist, born in Birmingham, England on November 24, 1863. St. Clair studied architecture and worked as a draftsman in England. After immigrating to America, he was an architect in Boston, Denver, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco before moving to Pasadena about 1890. He had a home in the Arroyo Seco and, after 1906, commuted regularly to Laguna Beach where he is considered to be the first artist to work in that community. Primarily a self-taught painter, his representational watercolors are derived from the English school of painting. St. Clair died of tuberculosis at his Pasadena home on March 6, 1912.
