What do you know about Oscar Maurer?
Everyone in Berkeley (or almost everyone) knows the Oscar Maurer photography studio designed by Bernard Maybeck in 1907.
Maurer was one of the most important of the California Pictorialists, widely exhibited and praied in the early years of the 20th century. Yet his work is now largely inaccessible and his life shrouded in mystery.
