Gustave Baumann's Southwest

$24.95

Gustave Baumann (1881–1971) moved to the arts community of Santa Fe in 1918. The influences of other artists, along with Native American potters, inspired Baumann to produce woodblock prints depicting the southwestern landscape, its peoples, and their rituals. As his images grew more complex, he devised innovative printing techniques, with warm, blended hues. He captured the spirit of his surroundings in a body of work that continues to be venerated for its personal imagery, singular style, and exacting technique. This book reproduces more than 50 of the artist’s prints and gouaches.

Gustave Baumann

Gustave Baumann (American, 1881–1971) drew on the invigorating influences of European and American artists, along with watercolor painters and Native American potters, to produce complex color woodblock prints that reveal a country both delicate and rugged, personal and mythic. Brought from Germany to Chicago as a boy, Baumann supported his family financially while still a teenager, when he worked at an engraver’s and discovered an affinity for printmaking. He took night classes in art and saved enough money to study block printing in Munich. Back in the United States, his travels brought him to New Mexico, where he perfected his signature style and for more than 50 years captured the crystalline light and rich colors of the Southwest with affection and subtlety.
