Description

In 1919, living in Santa Fe, Baumann returned briefly to the temperas he had painted in Brown County, Indiana, to create October Night and Salt Creek (2005.436). The artist’s musings describe October Night, his only nocturnal view: “Just before leaving last fall an unusually fine moonlight night tempted me for a long tramp in search of new material—the path lay over the highest hills and down through little hollows with lonely cabins and lacey sycamores all bathed in shimmery light.”
