Gustave Baumann developed his interest in color woodblock printmaking as part of the Brown County Art Colony in Indiana and moved to the Southwest in 1918, first to Taos and then to a permanent residence in Santa Fe. Baumann’s work expresses his enthusiasm for the people, flora and fauna, and archaeology. Rooted in Arts and Crafts aesthetics, but with a modernist sensibility, Baumann’s bold colors and textured forms echo in expressionistic ways. Baumann also carved marionettes for public ceremonies (including Zozobra, precursor to today’s Burning Man) and figures for churches.
