About this artwork

Gustave Baumann began his artistic career in woodblock printing as a student as at the Kunstgewerbeschule (Arts and Crafts School) in Munich, which was the center of commercial German block printing in color in the early 1900s. This color linocut of a local residence is the second version of a print depicting the same subject made the previous month; however, in this iteration the intensity of the colors has been reduced for a more subdued effect. Baumann also added a higher degree of detail in the clouds and in the shadows evoked by the overhanging trees.
