About this artwork

These two prints present artistic paeans to the American Southwest and reflect the body of work Baumann produced during his trip to the Grand Canyon in 1921. In the first print, he partially obscured the jutting precipices of the canyon with the wiry branches of a piñon tree. In the second, which captures a view from the Bright Angel hiking trail, Baumann depicted the canyon’s craggy peaks and steep walls with vivid tones of russet, purple, and green.
