Gustave Baumann

Gustave Baumann (1881-1971)
is famous for his prints
of Western scenes.

But before he moved to Santa Fe,
he lived in Chicago for a few years,
studied at the Art Institute,
painted in Brown County,
and joined the Palette and Chisel.

The above piece was displayed
in the Art Institute's Chicago Artist show
of 1916

Here's a view of Harden Hollow,
in Brown County, Indiana,
done the same year

But here's what he's famous for (1920)

An interesting presentation
of his ephemera
can be found
