Introduction
Artist Gustave Baumann (American, b. Germany, 1881–1971) immigrated with his family to the United States from Germany when he was ten years old. At the age of sixteen he began full-time work in a commercial engraving house and took night classes in drawing at the Art Institute of Chicago to, in his words, “get a little closer to art.” Baumann began work at an advertising studio and by 1903 had opened his own studio. As soon as he had saved one thousand dollars from the new business, Baumann gave one half of the earnings to his mother and used the other half to travel to Munich to enroll in the School of Arts and Crafts located there. At the time, Munich printmakers were producing bold, innovative designs, which so deeply impressed Baumann that they influenced his work throughout his life. In rural Indiana, New York, New England, and the Southwest (where he lived for fifty years), he produced work that portrayed the spirit of his surroundings with respect and deep affection. You’ll find 22 of Gustave Baumann’s artworks in this coloring book. They are shown as small pictures on the inside front and back covers. When you color the line drawings, you could choose to copy the originals, or you might prefer to create your own color combinations. We’ve left the last page of this coloring book blank so that you can draw and color a picture of your own. Will it be a landscape, a still life, or something wholly from your imagination?
