On my visit to the Cleveland Museum of Art last Thursday, I happened upon another special exhibit that I found interesting. It featured the work of a German-American artist by the name of Gustave Bauman. Bauman was a master of color woodblock printing. In 2005 Bauman's daughter made a gift of sixty five of her father's woodcuts to the museum.
This series of prints shows what a tedious and time consuming process it was to create his color prints. A separate woodblock would be carved for each color. The colors were added one by one to create the finished picture.
