Rain captures the artist and his family, including the German shepherd Tosco, in the doorway of their home in Santa Fe. Baumann built the adobe house in 1923 and in 1925 married Jane Henderson, an actress and singer from Denver, who was researching Native American music at the Santa Clara Pueblo. Their daughter Ann was born in 1927. Baumann expressed his devotion to his adopted home: “Given a free choice in the matter, I would have selected the Southwest as the place to be born. I would then have learned Spanish along with riding a horse and predicting the weather.”
