Though they were complex and exacting to produce—sometimes involving seven blocks to a single composition, months of work, many revisions, and innumerable proofs—Gustave Baumann’s woodcuts betray none of the effort that went into their making. They are self-contained, self-possessed small worlds that speak to the heart of simplicity.

My Garden, 1924
