Monday hero: Gustave Baumann

When I make a print, I challenge myself to use as few colours as possible to suggest loads of colours. This always fails, and I invariably end up printing more colours than I envisaged.

But when I see the work of the German born American Gustave Baumann, I think: why bother?

More is definitely more!

The colour woodcuts by Baumann (1881-1971) are extremely beautiful, and extremely colourful.

And he is right, a print is finished when it is perfect.
