Baumann learned about Brown County, Indiana, from members of the Palette and Chisel Club, who relished the hilly scenery and isolated location, as depicted in this color woodcut. In 1910 Baumann arrived in the small farming town of Nashville, which was sparsely populated, old-fashioned, picturesque, and cheap, where he was inspired by fresh motifs: “[U]nexpected glimpses of landscape started visions of innumerable pictures. . . . Here was a new sketching ground that had not been covered with paint rags and palette scrapings as mute evidence of previous discourses. This was a new experience. I felt at home.” Baumann stayed six and a half years.
