Hand of a craftsman: the woodcut technique of Gustave Baumann

Book Cover
Average Rating
Museum of New Mexico Press,
Pub. Date:
This book reveals the technique of a man who is among the most influential and beloved printmakers of the twentieth century. Being fastidious and infinitely patient, Baumann saved many of his preliminary drawings and progressive proofs, leaving behind a fascinating and intricate story of his creative process. Hand of a Craftsman features the heretofore unpublished notes and progressives the artist compiled in the making of his extraordinary woodcut Grand Caon and includes many prints never before reproduced and rarely exhibited. Baumann's work is awash in brilliant, hand-ground pigments and reveals a style that is wholly self-reliant and free. The intriguing technique used by this meticulous master, complex but enthralling, only enhances one's appreciation for this unique colour woodcut medium.
