Description
One of twelve color woodcuts originally published by Baumann in his “In The Hills of Brown” portfolio in 1910. The color woodcuts depict the scenic beauty of the isolated village of Nashville in Southern Indiana and its environs. With deference, Baumann also depicted the inhabitants going about their daily routines. Baumann carved the blocks, which were printed by him with the assistance of Alonzo Allison and his sons on the press of the Brown County Democrat in Nashville, Indiana. A few of the earliest impressions are signed and dated 1910 in black ink within the image.
