Place was important to Baumann, who imbued his prints with the ambiance of each locale. He wanted to depict every region as he found it, retaining its individual character. “What I produced in Brown County reflected the homey honesty of the place,” he enthused. “It was one of those restful moments in art when a house and a corn shock in the autumn haze still excited everyone’s interest. The place was so full of things that had not been exhausted as material. . . . Brown County was a sort of refuge.”
