Gustave Baumann Printmaker
New Mexico Museum of Art
Apr 17, 2008 through Mar 19, 2012

Baumann: Born in Germany in 1881, Baumann eventually settled down in Santa Fe, taking inspiration from the New Mexican countryside for many of his woodblock prints. In 1931, he began carving his “little people”—marionettes that he toured around the state for many years. Baumann’s legacy lives on today through replicas of his loveable little people, who entertain young and old alike at the Museum of Art's annual Christmas festivity.
