Description

Notes Gala Chamberlain on page 355 of In a Modern Rendering: The Color Woodcuts of Gustave Baumann, '"Autumnal Glory" is the seventh title listed under the heading Upper Pecos Valley on Baumann's 1928 letterpress inventory of his color woodcuts. Here, Baumann depicts the stunning autumn foliage of the Upper PEcos Valley while reminding the viewer of the importance the uplands play as open spaces for the grazing of sheep and goats. The Spaniards introduced the sheep to New Mexico, and the Hopis became such resourceful sheepherders that there were two million sheep in New Mexico by 1880.'
