"According to Martin Krause, Baumann's studio in 1909 was located at 410 South Michigan Avenue. The steel girder construction outside his studio window is the McCormick Building at 332 South Michigan Avenue (a block from the Art Institute of Chicago)." - Chamberlain, p. 140, cat. 13, In a Modern Rendering: The Color Woodcuts of Gustave Baumann
