Description

San Miguel de Santa Fe is a color woodcut from 1949 by American master printmaker Gustave Baumann (1881-1971). Baumann began printing his blocks in February 1949 but only printed 58 impressions. This impression is pencil signed, titled, and editioned I 25-125 '49. It was printed by the artist on cream Ansbach wove paper. Since Baumann printed less than half of his projected edition, most impressions bear the roman numeral I. The image measures 8 x 8-1/8 inches.

The reference for this work is Chamberlain 175. For an explanation of the printing record for this color woodcut and the number of blocks used, we refer you to page 433 of In A Modern Rendering The Color Woodcuts of Gustave Baumann: A Catalogue Raisonné. This impression is illustrated on page 432.

San Miguel is a Spanish colonial mission church in Santa Fe that was built by Don Pedro de Peralta, governor of New Mexico between 1610 and 1626, as a chapel for the Tlaxcala Indians, soldiers, and citizens. The original adobe walls and altar were built by the Tlaxcalan Indians from Mexico under the direction of Franciscan Padres. It was built in the Barrio de Analco, a national historic district of Santa Fe. The chapel was partially destroyed in the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. The present building dates to 1710, but it has undergone significant structural changes over the centuries. The bell tower was added in 1848.
