Big Eyes Russian Princess Oil on Canvas Painting by MAIO
Big Eyes "Russian Princess" oil on canvas painting by MAIO; the following information came from an excellent Big Eye Art website www.bigeyesart.com …”The artist known as Maio was born Margaret Eugenia Stewart, she was born November 23, 1925 or 24 (thanks largely to a contributor at FindAGrave.Com) Her first husband was photographer Mario Vincent Toti (1921-2009); her second was Wayne E. Thomis. (I don't know how long each marriage lasted.) Hence, she has both of her married surnames on her gravestone, she died on December 10, 1987, and was buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Santa Monica. Ms. Stewart (known to friends as 'Jean') and Toti had a daughter, Sherrie, whose godfather was none other than actor Clark Gable!”
