A Heady Aroma

A Lilac Year, 1951 by Gustav Baumann, color woodblock print, assorted collections.

Baumann arrived from Germany to the US in 1891 when he was 10 and eventually did his art training at the Art institute of Chicago. He eventually settled in New Mexico and worked primarily in woodblock prints which show a strong Japanese influence.

I just ran through your blog and loved your taste as well as your discretion (in choosing the right amount of history to intrude into our consciousness). Was your last post in April 2006? If it was, do come back to posting. I at least will be here to check it out every day (or nearly every day).
