About this artwork

One from a series of four large prints, Harden Hollow displays the rolling hills in Brown County, Indiana, where the artist lived from 1910 to 1917. A farmer works diligently in the foreground, with buildings scattered throughout the undulating countryside, which is bathed in light that forces the eye deeper into the composition. Baumann included this work along with seven other color woodblock prints at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915, where he was awarded a gold medal.
