Gustave Baumann's Southwest

Gustave Baumann has a strong connection to the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe. In 1918, Baumann moved here and became a part of the city's thriving art community. He was a member of the Taos Society of Artists and was instrumental in promoting the arts in New Mexico.Baumann's work is prominently featured in the New Mexico Museum of Art's collection. The museum has over 100 of his prints, as well as several of his hand-carved wooden sculptures. In addition to his artwork, Baumann also played a role in the development of the museum itself. In the 1930s, he worked with architect John Gaw Meem to design the museum's courtyard, which is now a popular gathering place for visitors and locals alike. Today, the New Mexico Museum of Art continues to celebrate Baumann's legacy through its exhibits and programming. Gustave Baumann's Southwest - exclusively available at MNMF Shops and at
