Baumann spent the summer of 1917 teaching wood working and toy making at the school established by author and social leader Lydia Avery Coonley Ward at her home, Hillside, in Wyoming, New York. Impressed by the beautiful scenery of the Wyoming Valley, the artist executed the nearby Woodland Meadows and five other color woodcuts in 1917. Years later, he returned to his drawings of this period to create Hillside Woods and another scene.
