Woodcut master Gustave Baumann (1881 – 1971) created 200 multicolor artworks during his life. Emigrating to Illinois from Germany, he attended the Chicago Art Institute and briefly studied in Munich, creating the first woodcuts that displayed his talent. Bauman lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for over 50 years, carving Southwestern landscapes, ancient Indian petroglyphs, traditional pueblo scenes and plants. His woodcuts are exhibited in major museums throughout the United States. Baumann was also highly skilled in oils, sculpture and marionette carving.
