ARTLandish | Gustave Baumann: Artist and Artisan
Marty Krause, Indianapolis Museum of Art
Thursday, May 25 | 7 pm | FREE
Katherine W. and Ezekiel R. Dumke Jr. Auditorium
In a time of mechanization, Gustave Baumann (German-American, 1881–1971) chose the traditional and labor-intensive woodcut process for his modern compositions. Martin Krause, the leading expert on Baumann, will discuss the life and technique of this indefatigable artist.
Krause is curator of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. He organized IMA's 2015 exhibition Gustave Baumann, German Craftsman -American Artist and edited The Autobiography of Gustave Baumann. Copies of the book will be for sale in The Museum Store, and a book signing will follow the talk.
