Description
Summer Clouds was first issued by Baumann in 1926 in an edition of 100. For in depth reading on the different editions see Chamberlain 110. This is an unsigned proof from the Baumann estate and one can offer no valid reason why this beautifully printed and complete impression would not have been signed by the artist. The white dots on the dress of the woman in the lower left suggests that it was printed at the same time Baumann completed the final impressions from the edition of 125. Summer Clouds is an iconic Baumann image. At the Seventh International Print Makers Exhibition in Los Angeles in 1926, Baumann won the Storrow Prize (offered for the best block print) for Summer Clouds
