German born artist Gustave Baumann was a leading printmaker, reviving the color woodcut technique in the United States. After moving to the United States at the age of ten, Baumann studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and later wood carving at Kunstgewerbeschule, Munich. While developing his unique printmaking method, he became a member of the Brown County Art Colony. Later Baumann settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico and joined the Taos Society of Artists. Additional to a skilled printmaker, Baumann produced oil paintings and furniture. He served as an area coordinator for the Public Works of Art Project for the Works Progress Administration (WPA) during the 1930s. His works can be found in the collections of National Gallery of Art, New Mexico Museum of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and more.
