"Baumann leaned the fundamentals of color relief printmaking in Germany where he was a student in 1905; after some time in Chicago and Indiana, he lived and worked for more than 50 years in Santa Fe. This volume was conceived and designed to complement Gustave Baumann: Nearer to Art , by Martin F. Krause et al (1993, Museum of New Mexico Press), which focused on the artist's life and his development as a printmaker; the present study concentrates on Baumann's printmaking methods and his achievements. Featured illustrations include studies and progressive proofs as well as prints from all periods of his career. 9.5x11" Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or."
