Description

This serene shadowed patio with turquoise benches and a vine covered trellis was discovered by Baumann in Velarde, New Mexico. This imagery obviously pleased Baumann as he returned to it three times. He carved the scene in a linear block to be included in his block book, Woodcut Impressions of New Mexico. He then carved a smaller linear block of the same imagery which he included in his self-published pamphlet Gus Baumann Sketch Booklet for 1949. In 1958, he cut another block with similar imagery but with the addition of a Santo in his niche for his holiday greeting card.
