Riassunto: Baumann's stunning woodcut prints of the great landscapes of the Southwest, the Pacific Coast, Grand Canyon and scenes of the artist colony days in Santa Fe are awash in brilliant hand-ground pigments that are delicately rugged and both personal and mystic. As these colours woodcuts attest, Baumann was a remarkable artist and craftsman.
Dall'editore: Independent, prolific, and influential, Gustave Baumann stands at the center of American woodcut printmaking in the first half of the century. He created vivid, brilliantly colorful nature-inspired scenes of rural American life and Indian cultures. His prints are simple and elegant studies rooted in a landscape that is both delicate and rugged. This award-winning book is the first published collection of his stunning oeuvre. Starting out as a commercial illustrator, at night Baumann studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, "to get nearer to art," and also briefly in Munich, refining the fundamentals of his artistic direction and creating his first woodcuts in a medium that would bring him international recognition. Baumann lived in Chicago and Brown County, Indiana, and then spent more than a half-century in Santa Fe, taking frequent side trips about the West and California and creating his most beloved prints.
