Description
Procession is also known as Processional and White Trees and was the third print for which Baumann used metal leaf as a “color.” The tempera study in the New Mexico Museum of Art has a silver sky. Young girls in white dresses readied for their first communion are line up against an adobe wall and the white blossoms of the tree echo the delicacy of the girl’s veils. Procession is a signature work by Baumann and this impression is remarkable for the flawless, leafed sky.
