About this artwork
During his lifetime Baumann created a wide variety of printed ephemera, including Christmas cards, calendars, marriage announcements, booklets, and stationery. Here, one of Baumann’s foremost utilitarian objects is the 1917 calendar he produced on commission for the Packard Motor Car Company. Baumann’s work demonstrates his ability to create art objects from everyday household items, melding art with design and aesthetics with functionality.
