Cholla and Sahuaro (Saguaro), 1928, by Gustave Baumann (American, b. Germany, 1881–1971)
“A towering saguaro cactus looms behind two blooming cholla cacti and a grouping of prickly pears in this brilliant evocation of the desert in spring. The first study for this print was made in the Sonoran Desert near Florence, Arizona, on March 25, 1927, and the next day Baumann finished a drawing in tempera that served as his guide for the carving of the six required color blocks.”
