The Hand-Carved Marionettes of Gustave Baumann

Famous colour woodcut printmaker Gustave Baumann was a superb woodcarver who was captivated by puppet theatre. In the 1930s Baumann carved a collection of marionettes for plays he wrote about New Mexico's cultural heritage. Featuring twenty-five marionettes photographed from the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe, this entertaining book tells the story of Baumann's theatre, describing in detail the plays, sets, and costuming, and highlights the extraordinary wood-carving artistry of this master.
