Gustave Baumann 2015 Wall Calendar
Complex and exacting to produce, sometimes involving seven blocks for a single composition, the woodcuts of Gustave Baumann (American, b. Germany, 1881–1971) betray none of the effort that went into their making. Baumann worked for a commercial engraver and attended the Art Institute of Chicago before spending a year in Munich, at that time an international block-printing center. In 1918, Baumann moved to New Mexico, where he would live the rest of his life. He developed innovative printing techniques that lent his works a luminous quality suiting the region’s broad skies and relentless sun.
