This Baumann woodblock was featured in our weekly email on 4/3/14 along with the following gallery comments:

Gustave Baumann’s The Landmark is one of the seminal woodblock prints from his Indiana period. Created c. 1916, the subject is Brown County and the colorful execution is classic Baumann. The use of India ink for his numbering scheme was his early (pre-Sante Fe) style of marking prints. He changed to pencil for noting edition numbers a few years later. Beyond Grandma Battin’s Garden, The Landmark is probably the most popular of Baumann’s Indiana subject matter. The piece has gone through conservation and the ‘oatmeal’ paper that he employed on his Indiana prints is wonderfully bright and without flaws. It’s housed behind museum glass in an exquisitely crafted (and technically challenging) Baumann reproduction frame which is a dead ringer for the frames Baumann himself created for his pieces. A very nice example from America’s woodblock master, in perfect condition and beautifully presented. Arts and Crafts gushing out all over the place.
