Description
"Plum and Peach Bloom" was one of five oversize color woodcuts that Baumann made during his stay in Nashville, Indiana. His hope was to decorate the walls of local schoolhouses with his color woodcuts but Brown County could not afford the products of his studio. Baumann was an avid photographer and in the Baumann Archive is a photograph of the two children carrying a bucket.
