Nearer to Art
Paperback ISBN: 0890132526
Independent, prolific, and influential, Gustave Baumann stands at the center of American woodcut printmaking in the first half of the century. He created vivid, brilliantly colorful nature-inspired scenes of rural American life and Indian cultures. His prints are simple and elegant studies rooted in a landscape that is both delicate and rugged. This award-winning book--published in 1993--was the first published collection of his stunning oeuvre. This is the first paperbound edition of the book. Starting out as a commercial illustrator, at night Baumann studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, "to get nearer to art," and also briefly in Munich, refining the fundamentals of his artistic direction and creating his first woodcuts in a medium that would bring him international recognition. Baumann lived in Chicago and Brown County, Indiana, and then spent more than a half-century in Santa Fe, taking frequent side trips about the West and California and creating his most beloved prints.

Herschel V. Jones
The Imprint of a Great Collector
Hardcover ISBN: 0816649049
An illustrated guide to one of the most significant collections of prints in America, including works by such masters as Albrecht Durer, Rembrandt van Rijn, James McNeill Whistler, and Mary Cassatt. In Herschel V. Jones: The Imprint of a Great Collector, Lisa Dickinson Michaux sheds new light on the creation of this extraordinary collection. Through in-depth essays, she reveals Jones's ambitious goals as well as his tenacity - he requested anonymity from the museum until he had "secured rare additional prints to fill in the gaps, making it a collection that represents the entire history of the graphic arts." Eventually Jones added nearly 700 prints to the collection. In 1916 Herschel V. Jones purchased the esteemed print collection amassed by William M. Ladd of Portland, Oregon. Jones promptly gave more than 5,300 of these etchings, engravings, woodcuts, and lithographs to the recently opened Minneapolis Institute of Arts, thereby helping the museum establish one of the first public print departments in the nation. This full-color volume reproduces more than 100 of the rarest and most highly prized prints from the Jones Collection and paints a picture both of the pioneering collectors Herschel V. Jones and William M. Ladd and of the history of print collecting in America at the turn of the twentieth century.
