About The Event

Print Club members are invited to join Jane Glaubinger, guest curator and former CMA curator of prints, for an exclusive virtual tour of Gustave Baumann: Colorful Cuts.

Like many Chicago artists in the first years of the 20th century, Gustave Baumann discovered the beauty of rural Brown County in Indiana. While living in Nashville from 1910 to 1916, he produced his first important set of color woodcuts. In 1917 he headed east before traveling the next year to New Mexico, where he spent the rest of his life. Exhilarated by the state’s natural beauty, he settled in Santa Fe and over the next five decades produced complex color woodcuts that captured the area’s intense sunlight and arid atmosphere.

Print Club members will receive a digital invitation. This event will be hosted on Zoom; the event link and instructions will be provided to those who RSVP.
