Talaya Peak (New Mexico) - GUSTAVE BAUMANN - woodcut printed in colors

American, (1881-1971)

Woodcut printed in colors, 1926, edition 100. 9 1/8 x 10 7/8 in. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a superb, luminous, early impression printed on a light tan wove paper which was a favorite of the artist. The margins are wide. The condition is quite good apart from discoloration at the extreme top edge of the top margin. This was a very popular print for Baumann but today for some reason it is rather rare. Our impression is from the first edition before the addition of the wagon in the foreground. The second edition has stamped numbers (100 impressions) and there was a third edition of 120 and even another in the works (90 impressions from an intended edition of 125). Six impressions are located in museum collections. Our impression is in the original Baumann designed frame which is in very good condition overall. Talaya Peak is near Santa Fe, New Mexico. (Our thanks to Gala Chamberlain for assisting us in cataloging this print.)       SOLD
