AHPCS members will be pleased to learn of a new publication cataloging the work of German-American color-woodcut artist Gustave Baumann (1881-1971): In A Modern Rendering: The Color Woodcuts of Gustave Baumann, A Catalogue Raisonné (September 2019).
One of the highlights of the 2016 AHPCS annual meeting in Santa Fe, Mexico, was the opportunity to view prints and plates by Baumann in the New Mexico History Museum collection. Baumann was a key figure in the American Arts and Crafts movement, and his prints often showcased the natural beauty, light, color, and culture of the American Southwest.
The book, by Gala Chamberlain, with essays by Nancy E. Green and Thomas Leech and a foreword by Martin Krause, is published by Rizzoli Electra and is available for sale on their website. Click here for more information.
