Gustave Baumann (American, b. Germany, 1881–1971)
Grandma Battin’s Garden, 1927
Gustave Baumann first made a watercolor painting of Sarah Battin’s garden in Nashville, Indiana, when he was a member of the Brown County, Indiana, artists colony. Years later, living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, he created this woodcut print from the image. It’s a fine example of Baumann’s artworks that reflect the beauty and simplicity of rural life, and it’s a perfect image for a 300-piece jigsaw puzzle.
